Good Drank (feat. Gucci Mane & Quavo of the Migos) – 2 Chainz
2 Chainz smash-hit song, “Good Drank” gets a music video. Opting for a more “old-school” vintage look the song successfully combines elements of the past with the style and flair inherent in 2016-2017 rap. The song itself has been tearing up charts and radio waves across the country, especially in Atlanta.
Featuring none-other-than Gucci 1017 & Quavo of the Migos the track unfolds over a soothing, catchy piano chord and trap snares. Only these three Atlanta rappers could create something with this much uniqueness, and still keep it “street,” with elements of a slow jam, lyrics characteristic of a party rap song and flows smooth as ice. Can’t forget Quavo’s incredible chorus either.
Make sure you do not sleep on these two standout tracks from two of the hottest producers in the music game right now. The first “Gorilla,” comes to us from EDM/chillwave/hip-hop producer Clams Casino, who gained much recognition after producing several songs for Lil’ B and A$AP Rocky (Lil B’s “I’m God and A$AP’s “Wassup”) as well as Mac Miller’s “Angel.” Clams is well known in the hip-hop and electronic community and his beats are revered as being very unique, different, often hauntingly good. His self-released instrumental EP, Rainforest, was very well-received. Featuring original beats and instrumental versions of his tracks artists have rapped over, his instrumental tapes became a series (Instrumentals) which is available fore free from his website.
Our second highlighted producer is a god in the indie music community and is celebrated as one of the most prolific and youngest electronic producer to date. “DMT” is one of XXYYXX’s more atmospheric, entrancing and aurally euphoric instrumentals from his popular sophomore album. XXYYXX first gained popularity following the release of his first album Still Sound and his very successful, influential self-titled EP, XXYYXX in 2012. One of the standout singles “About You” (see below) was extremely popular with its calming yet repeating, expounding beat. The song was so popular that a remix featuring rapper 2 Chainz surfaced shortly after the originals’ release.
