In the fast moving world of social media, being late is a sin. Be it the latest meme, videotaped ass whupping, or mixtape, if you want to be involved in the conversation, you’d better not put your smartphone down for a second.
So it is with great heaviness in my heart that I accept my late pass on a talented rapper, from my own home region no less, by the name of G-Two. The P.G. County, Maryland native dropped an excellent mixtape, Trillmatic, at the end of last year, and returns with a remix to one of its standout tracks. The “Old School” remix features H-Town youngin’ L.E.S., whose southern drawl blends perfectly with the slinky, soulful, production. G-Two himself is a clever and talented lyricist with a unique sound and perspective.
As a bonus, peep the DMV emcee speaking on what motivates him in the brief video for another Trillmatic joint, “Can’t Get Enough.”
