Download Audio Push’s ‘Come As You Are’ Mixtape
It’s not easy to be taken seriously as an MC (or in this case, a group) after debuting with a dance craze record like ‘Teach Me How to Jerk,’ but Audio Push are slowly but surely doing just that. Four years after they had kids jerking in school hallways, the Cali duo return with solid lyricism and top-notch production on their new mixtape, ‘Come As You Are.’
The 15-track project is executive produced by ex-G.O.O.D. Music hit machine, Hit-Boy, whose budding HS87 imprint Audio Push are signed to. From the VIP guests — Lil Wayne, T.I., Wale, Joey Bada$$ and Ty Dolla $ign — to the sonic diversity, the influence of Hit-Boy can be heard throughout. That isn’t to say Price and Oktane don’t deliver on their end, though.
Arriving fresh off their supporting role on Lil Wayne’s ‘America’s Most Wanted’ tour, ‘Come As You Are’ sets up Audio Push nicely for what is sure to be a breakout year in 2014.
