After the success of his “Trap Rock” EP — SNYPA teams up again with DJ SCREAM alongside HOODRICH KEEM for the release of his follow up mixtape “Trap Rock 2”.
The 15-track project features Young Thug, Yak Gotti, Calico Jonez, Benzino, and many more. With some of the same production from the original Trap Rock, Snypa steps out on this one as he mixes Trap music with a little bit of Rock to tell his story …We had a listen:
“Stupid” [Prod. By Kid808 & Hell On Wheels] is a hollow squeeze with echoing regret running down each corridor. The rap is smooth and steady, with fire and curves in the seams.
As you can imagine “Trap Rock” [Prod. By Narlay] squirms & wriggles yet contains that blunt rock edge. The repeating piano motif provides sinister undertones and the vocal rhythms are hot-flavored and stoutly impressive.
“Funny” feat Yak Gotti & with LV Baby and is hot and musty. Like finding fugitive extra cash under the oven. It’s dirty/greasy, hot ‘n’ wanted — not wasted. The wordplay is rapid and fluid and the sparkled atmosphere is close to perfect.
The mix-tape concludes with “Some More” (Feat. Calico Jones.) This starts with a stark vocalization. Then the moping bob-headed rap is squeezed out between the grills. This is a heady hymnal to the girl and the cash. The poetry is complete. Not innocent… but complete.
Double-time hat-spin snares and cinematic overtures galore … these tracks propel the genre into the world of free-fall melancholy and cooking-rock bleakness.
