Best Songs of the Week: Big K.R.I.T., Snoop Dogg & Surf Club
Friday has boomeranged back around and greeted us yet again, which means that another work week is coming to a close. Schedules can be hectic and although we love getting our music fix in between slaving away at the workplace, it's nearly impossible at times to sift through the endless stream of new songs popping up on the 'net.
We know your struggle well here at The Boombox and have taken it upon ourselves to present a few of the dopest new releases of the week in a bundle package called Songs of the Week. Last week's edition featured strong releases from G-Eazy, Kidd Kidd and Snakeships. This week's tracks deliver some heat to the table as well. Check out our Songs of the Week with selections from Big K.R.I.T., Snoop Dogg and Daz Dillinger and Surf Club. Enjoy.
After avoiding the sophomore jinx in 2014, Big K.R.I.T. was relatively quiet for the better part of this year, but is currently on a fourth quarter campaign. He's gifted fans with a new mixtape, It's Better This Way. Taking another break from his Kritically Acclaimed tour stop, the Mississippi titan links with North Carolina spitter Rapsody for the aptly titled "Guillotine Flow." "Ayo, this that guilootine flow, I'ma cut them n----s down, shawty, anything go / When none of them n---s round, shawty, now I'm on my king s--- / Cream s---, evil wing s--- / Bubble on high beam s---, give 'em that dope, that fiend s---," K.R.I.T. spits. He unleashes a vicious set of bars before handing the mic off to Rapsody, who shines with a lethal verse of her own, continuing to prove her worth as an artist to watch. Big K.R.I.T. comes through in the clutch yet again with a soulful banger that is sure to get burn and is one of the better sleeper cuts of the week.
The West Coast never disappoints with its artists' consistent stream of content. Over the past few years, a plethora of new talent has been emerging in the game as power players. This resurgence hasn't been seen since the days of Death Row, but more than a few alums from the house that Dr. Dre and Suge Knight built are still active and banging over beats, most notably Snoop Dogg and Daz Dillinger. The elder statesman of the West hooks up with his cousin Daz on their groovy single, "Sho You Right," for some good old slick talk. Expansive soundscapes, Auto-Tuned hooks and dope raps are calling cards of Tha Dogg Pound sound. Snoop and Daz deliver all three on this breezy offering that is sure to liven up your weekend.
Hit-Boy and Chase N Cashe were part of a group called Surf Club before going their separate ways to build their own careers. With their status as some of the hottest rapping producers of the new generation in tact, the two reunite for the banger "Go Off" featuring Quentin Miller and Travi$ Scott. Containing soulful wails on top of a rolling piano and sinister synths, the production is a straightforward affair and finds the rappers talking greasy all over the beat. "I got a brand new Jeep wit the doors off / Smoking on a pound of weed, I had to doze off / And a bad b---- wit me wit her clothes off / Ballin' like I'm KD, I had to go off," Hit-Boy serves, setting the table for Quentin Miller to do his bidding. Bars like "Pull up in that '97 like it's '97 / Third eye wide open watching for the devil" are delivered with finesse and give people an idea of why his services are in high demand as of late. "Go Off" rates high on our list of new tunes released this week and a shoo-in for inclusion in our latest lineup.
