French Montana caught a body with his Rampage-sampling, Noreaga-interpolating single “Off The Rip (from his Casino Life 2: Brown Bag Legend mixtape). The song is (because everyone loves to use this word) unapologetically East Coast, which comes across as a shocker because French – despite hailing from the Bronx – tends to lean toward a Southern rap sound. It’s actually a refreshing song for those who reside in the Tri-State Area, a sharp left turn from the Milly Rocking currently gripping the region.
Leave it to DJ Dahi to try to give the single some West Coast flavor. Recently lending his talents to Dr. Dre‘s new album Compton: A Soundtrack, Dahi – along with some help from longtime deejay for Pac Div Sean G – smooth the rough edges off of the track and give it a more laid-back vibe that still maintains the energy of the original.
