Petty is a TSS favorite. So saying he was partial inspiration in giving Tim Gent’s “Dope Dealer” a spin would be false. He was the inspiration.
What results is an experience, well, dope in all facets from lyrics, production and storytelling, delving into the unique world of the mythical figure only referred to as “the plug.” Gent’s effortless transition from rapping to harmonizing is cold. Meanwhile, Petty’s Petty and when Petty is Petty, we all win.
Expect to find “Dope Dealer” on Timmy’s Trials Of Hulio, hosted by DJ Logan Garrett, on May 20.
