We're currently undergoing a renaissance of good natured dudes rapping over super hard beats. Even when Waka Flocka is staring dead eyed at the camera screaming his own name, it all comes across in service of having a GOOD ASS TIME. Travis Porter are on the happier end of the spectrum. Killer Mike compared them to the Beastie Boys, which is pretty accurate. You know how you have that friend that is always down to party, and when you're down too they're like the best person to be around ever? Travis Porter are a whole bunch of those friends at once, and the best part is that if you don't feel like raging you can just turn this off and listen to Fennesz or whatever.
