Petty is one rappin’ ass rapper.
His newest audio nugget, “New HD,” is produced by Evan Blocker and serves as a public service announcement more than anything else. The backdrop is as melodic as it is hypnotizing; the perfect set-up for Petty’s two-verse offering. Coincidentally, what remains to be seen is how much more addictive “HD” will morph into once give the all-important whip test.
As laid back as the recliner your father’s been watching games in the past 30 years, taking advantage of the last handful of comfortable weeks (temperature-wise) before Old Man Winter comes a knocking with this as the soundtrack for those weekend excursions or weekday solo missions is suggested. Less cluttered beats always tend to serve Petty better, allowing him to showcase his full repertoire of skills from delivery, to flow to conviction.
When he does, the results are 99.999% of the time “hella dope.” Like so.
