ON WAX: XXXTENTACION ‘MEMBERS ONLY VOL. 4,’ BOOGIE DROPS ‘EVERYTHING’S FOR SALE,’ + MORE
ON WAX IS A WEEKLY TAKE UPDATING YOU ON THE POCKET OF CULTURE KNOWN AS HIP-HOP. WE BRING YOU EVERYTHING FROM BREAKING NEWS TO ALBUM DROPS, JAIL TIME AND WHO’S BEEFING WITH WHO.
BOOGIE’S EVERYTHING’S FOR SALE
Compton MC, Boogie, dropped his major label debut project titled Everything’s For Sale. What’s special about Boogie is his introspective lyricism, alongside his ability to both sing and rap. The production can be smooth, with Boogie opting for a more traditional hip-hop sound versus the dominate trap production. That’s not to say there isn’t any trap, as Boogie teams up with J.I.D on “Soho.” Boogie also taps a rare feature from Eminem, as Boogie is on Shady/Interscope Records. 6LACK, Snoh Aalegra and Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah also appear on the project. Boogie put out an excellent project, and it’ll be exciting to see where he goes from here.
TYGA BREAKS OUT ANOTHER HIT
The man with the best comeback of 2018 is Tyga who is already hard at work for a stellar 2019. The LA rapper dropped a collaborative track with DJ Snake titled “Girls Have Fun.” G-Eazy and Rich The Kid also appear on the track. The song is more Tyga than DJ Snake, making for another potential big single for the MC.
YO GOTTI LINKS WITH LIL BABY
Memphis OG, Yo Gotti, has teamed up with Lil Baby for a track. “Put a Date On It” is the Southern trap record you’d expect from both artists. However, Lil Baby steals the show, delivering one of his best verses in a while. It’s always nice to see the new school team-up with the OGs.
XXXTENTACION RELEASED MEMBERS ONLY VOL. 4
After the passing of rapper XXXTentacion, the world of hip-hop fell upside down. For most, they were unable to stop expressing their gratitude for this young man in his untimely departure. Even though he is not with us anymore, his group has still remained tight, collecting what they could to release another “Members Only” project. The tape portrays all members of the group fairly, and it doesn’t oversaturate with X, but instead allows X to take the same stance as Kendrick did during the Black Panther soundtrack. If you’re a fan of X or any members of the group, then you’ll find this to be a satisfying project from beginning to end.
Until next time, it’s On Wax
