this album is probably the most successful cross-pollination of ny drill and jersey club to date. cash cobain is the producer, and perhaps the person most responsible for the "sample drill" trend, who also provides vocals, tho chow lee is the more natural vocalist of the two. it's also probably the horniest rap album since the heyday of turquoise jeep. i can't stop listening. if lyrics like "she eat my dick up like empanada" are a dealbreaker, i get it, but this stuff def deserves its own thread.

(before anyone asks, i have no idea how they managed to clear any of these samples)

"slizzy like" is the breakout hit, if there is one

"jholiday" and "vacant" are also gaining traction

they just came out with the deluxe edition, home to "back it up" ft. tata

and my personal fav "just blick it"

sample drill’s solution to the red tape of music sharing is to ignore it. Glyn Brown cites Juice Wrld’s uncleared jack of Sting’s “Shape of My Heart”, used to make his hit “Lucid Dreams,” as their inspiration — the illegal sample cost Juice the profits from that monster song, but it also opened the door for other hits that powered his fame. Cash has said, “If somebody sues me, I already made (the song) so I don’t care no more…

haven't listened yet but kinda love that philosophy. industry's going to find a way to fuck the artists no matter what, so just do whatever the hell you want. sue me for what?, etc

maybe the horniness in the lyrics is an attempt to make rightsholders so uncomfortable that they don't realize they're being sampled

I'm all for the proliferation of NJ club. "Just Blick It" is 170 bpm, wow.

my fav off this, somewhat randomly, is:

I like how fun this music is

yeah this is very cool. lyrics are def a little one note—I got through track 16 of the deluxe and was like "I need to listen to something holy now"—but the production is so inventive I didn't really care, also I've listened to enough Skillibeng to have partial immunity at this point

ha yeah 25 songs might be a little too much slizziness

a very fun album that I’m enjoying. it’s raw and playful, which is a good combination

tracks I saved: “Wavy Lady (Remix)”, “Orgasm”, “Hornitos” and “Slizzy Like”, kind of random, because the quality level remained pretty constant (and I listened to the full 25 tracks)

also, Chow Lee sounds quite a bit like Swae Lee at times, whether that’s a coincidence or not

one month passes...

many cash and chow compilations on the new mhpg sound album, which is just as horny and sample-crazed, but a bit more laid back. a mixed bag imo, as is the nature of label compilations, but there are some serious highlights.

"slizzy situation"

"pack it up"

four months pass...

cash's new youtube/soundcloud-only release checks a lot of the same boxes as last year's material, especially the first song with the *incredible* isleys flip
