Don Trip’s next, full project, Godspeed, releases on June 23rd. Until then, he’s shared a five-song set appropriately titled In The Meantime to hold things down, as if his numerous contributions on Starlito’s Introversion weren’t already enough.
In fact, I’m going to point out here that his verse on “My Love” was a Notable Quotable when we’re talking rappers breaking down what breaks down relationships not only for artists but any man that’s putting his hustle first in order to provide for his loved ones. The only reason I pulled back on highlighting the song is because I didn’t want to OD on praising the work he and Star have put in recently. Toss in Gates’ recent release, Murder For Hire (get it here), and maybe new material from Dolph and my summer listening rotation would be locked up by these four horsemen.
For this project, Trip keeps it lean, calling only on Star and Shy Glizzy for features and sticking with current mainstays The Mekanics and Yung Ladd for production. Pre-order Godspeed on iTunes while streaming In The Meantime below.
