Face the facts, most songs with Z-Ro are worth downloading. Yet, believe it or not, The King Of The Ghetto is like third on the list of notables when it comes to this southern-swangin’ dime piece from talented up & comer GT Garza.
First of all, the Houston new jack definitely has a unique and marketable sound – YelaWolf mixed with Boosie, perhaps? – and rightfully steals the opening spot. Second, Texas producer TrakkSounds is slowly but surely becoming a legitimate beast behind the boards, expanding his sample-based sound into live instrumentation even further here, combining warm rhythm guitars with 808s and almost forcing you to recline the driver’s seat. Then, there’s the typically downtrodden underground legend Z-Ro The Crooked, who delivers a surprisingly optimistic verse and another hot hook for the books. Oh, and Slim Thug does Slim Thug. So, wamp wamp. Anggh. All that.
But, seriously, the Lone Star state and beyond will love this one.
