Happy Music Monday! Here you will find the latest in popular music and local artist every Monday.
Summer Nights and Rare Events 2 (S.N.A.R.E. 2) is the title of MOB Affiliate A-Down‘s new mixtape. I received an early copy of the tape last week and in my personal opinion…this is the best project that A-Down has put out by far!
The tape gives you a lot of lyrical yet intellectual bars, which is expected from A-Down. But something new on this tape is that he gets sexy on multiple occasions. For example, on track 10 A-Down did his own version of “Diced Pineapples” and this is the first time I have ever heard anything like this from him (and ya’ll know this is one of my rapper crushes so I was definitely feeling this one). He gets sexy on other instruments like Wale‘s “Bad” along with MOB member Riggz – who we all know loves to get sexy on the track as well.
“Jump in your stream I just let my minnows race. We goin’ make a song and that backboard goin’ be the bass.” – A Down “Diced Pineapples Remix”
On track 13, A-Down took us back to some old Wayne and did a song to the “A Milli” instrumental where he was bragging on the track from beginning to end! There are other memorable instruments on this project like “Power Trip“, “All Falls Down“, and DJ Khaled‘s “No New Friends“.
The A-Down that we get on this mixtape is a very mature, lyrical, and intimate person; a project that you do not want to miss out on.
