Dreamville (aka the Golden State Warriors of rap) is looking for a two game sweep today with “Down Bad” and “Got Me.”
When you have a line-up with Young Nudy (OK, maybe not that n***a), Bas, J.I.D., EarthGang and J. Cole, expect beats to be slaughtered, babies to cry and individuals to call off work. In “Down Bad,” I think the quintet (That means set of 5, fools) lives up to the hype, as together, they were able to create this high-octane banger that features an outer-spaceish instrumental, decent bars by Nudy, a zany hook by J.I.D., a cold ass verse by Bas, a boss-like verse by Cole, and an absolutely slayed verse by EarthGang. Though the song will be considered a complete one, it feels like a teaser, to me.
I love Dreamville, but my favorite group of all-time is still Puff Daddy and the Bad Boy Family.
OVERALL RATING (4.5/5)
