One is a Philly born albeit Los Angeles bred veteran notable for being 1/2 of Tha Dogg Pound alongside Daz Dillinger & the latter coming straight outta Marion, Indiana turning heads within the underground since 2005, notably throughout the horrorcore scene. They’ve solely crossed paths with one another on wax a couple of instances over time, however are linking collectively & placing their chemistry to the check with a full-length debut.
“Mid West” is a grim piano/increase bap opener produced by Tone Spliff to start out off the album speaking about being a lot greater than the photographs that each MCs have portrayed whereas “Need Smoke!” works in some melodic vocal chops & dusty drums courtesy of Johnny Slash acknowledging that folks don’t wanna fuck with them. Too $hort tags alongside for “Dumb Shit (Delirious)” to speak about not coping with stupidity over a syrupy pattern simply earlier than “I Ain’t Even Know!” has a extra spacious sound talking on dwelling their lives & not attempting to do anybody improper.
Transferring on from there with “Participant’s Ball”, we’ve got Snoop Dogg becoming a member of the Gotti Mob over some manufacturing mixing g-funk & increase bap referencing the titular gathering of pimps that takes place in Chicago yearly main into “Da Buzine$$” diving into entice territory speaking about doing massive enterprise solely. After the “Recreation Acknowledge Recreation” interlude, Sacramento veteran & the most recent addition to the Strange Music roster X-Raided comes into the image for the bell-infused “Usually” advising to take warning previous to the bouncy “Take Me Away” displaying a extra romantic facet lyrically.
“Drugs” with MC Eiht finds all 3 of them over a darkish entice beat asking if one needs to do some gangsta shit or deal with a sure scenario like gents whereas the track “Transfer Good” pulls from hyphy music instrumentally recommending that one wants to pay attention to all the stress surrounding them. The penultimate observe “Wanna Be a Ho” returns to the entice sound 1 final time telling their vital others to be themselves round them, however then “All over the place” with KXNG CROOKED & Spice 1 actually ends the album with a delirious ballad about being in every single place.
Now regardless of already being aware of Kurupt at a younger age resulting from his historical past with Dying Row Data & the D.P.G.C. collective, I personally haven’t actually heard a lot of C-Mob’s personal materials outdoors of some options he’s finished for artists like Tech N9ne & Kung Fu Vampire all through the final 3 years. All of that being stated: the Gotti Mob gave us a reasonably stable debut right here & solely time will inform in the event that they plan on working with each other extra down the street. The manufacturing from begin to end is trunk-rattling & the types of each MCs gel with each other impressively.
