G-Side & Block Beattaz Put a New Twist on a Classic With ’25 Lighters’
DJ DMD’s classic cut ’25 Lighters’ with Lil’ Keke and Fat Pat is one of the essential southern hip-hop records to know. The reunited G-Side decide to pay homage to the memorable song with the help of their go-to production team, the Block Beattaz, who deliver their signature spacey and melodic backdrop for this updated version.
ST 2 Lettaz and Yung Clova flow effortlessly on the beat while songstress Crystal Carr adds to the cut with her sultry delivery of the familiar “25 lighters on my dresser, dresser” hook.
This latest song, premiered by OG Mattress, is just a taste of what to expect from G-Side in 2014. The duo has been on a roll since they reunited this past November and are currently working on a new album titled ‘Create,’ due later this year. And if you’re planning on attending SXSW, make sure you check out G-Side’s performance on March 15 at the Avenue on Congress Rooftop in Austin, Texas.
