Treacherous Records’ compilation album The Mint Room didn’t pack as much bang as we’d hoped, especially with all the solid names scattered about the tracklist. But, it would be a shame skip over the project without acknowledging the lone shining record, “What You Call That.” Featuring standout verses courtesy of One-2 and Blu Division Music’s Quiz and a hook by now-marquee rapper ScHoolboy Q, it’s a throwback ode to the gun-toting days of the West Coast’s golden era. Fans of Crooked I will also be pleased because his artist One-2 does an excellent job stealing the show by using Crook’s signature start-and-stop delivery that’s somehow smooth and jagged at the same damn time.
