If there’s one type of hip hop that rarely fails, it’s that laid-back, Southern, grippin’ grain, trunk-knocking music. You can press play in your Toyota Corolla, and you’ll feel the oozing, lush sounds of the soul samples and 808s were made to play in your specific set of speakers.
Georgia-born rapper Rittz is sure to have kicked the driver seat back as low as it’ll go and rested his wrist on top of the the wheel at least once in his life, and now he has a song of his own to do it again with.
The Strange Music signee is gearing up to drop his new album, Top Of The Line, on May 6, and today, he debuts the second single, “Propane,” with Southern legends MJG and Devin the Dude.
“MJG, to me, is responsible for the way so many Southern artists have rapped for the last twenty years,” Rittz shared with 2DBZ via email. “Devin the Dude is one of my favorite rap artists of all time, period. I used to ride around and study his syllables. The average ear might not pick up on Devin’s clever word play at first, but the way he raps has always had a huge influence on me as an artist. To be on a song with these guys is like being in the ring with Hulk Hogan. I never would have thought it would happen in a million years.”
