Fiend, like his brother in the Jet Life Curren$y, never seems to stop dropping music. However, with his ability to seemingly sprinkle tracks like “Type Of Cat,” off like shake, that’s a joy, not a sin. This is a sleepy-eyed posse cut, with the scent of the finest trees wafting through the screen.
Big Sant kicks things off, chewing up the beat with an energetic, stomping verse. Fiend slows the proceedings down, standing on the line between crooning and rapping as he eases out honey-sweet syllables. And Smoke DZA delivers as anchor of the track, revving up that furious flow to start, and then gradually easing his foot off the gas to let the plaintive trumpet take the track to its end. Nothing crazy here, no stress. Just three talented rappers, doing what they do as the haze rises up thick around them.
“Type Of Cat” is off Fiend’s latest release, Life Behind Limo Glass, which is available for download now.
