It’s almost impossible to have a conversation about Travis Porter with a “serious” rap fan without falling back on the phrase “No really they can rap.” As if that weren’t readily apparent from their music. But the identity politics of the rap game have twisted themselves up so tightly around the aesthetic politics that’s it’s hard for some to recognize a good rapper, even when they’re being good at rapping. This is all a really roundabout way to tell you that Travis Porter has a new mixtape out and that yes, they can really rap. Guest spots from Wale, Meek Mill, Lloyd, Big Sean, Tyga, YG, Kelly Rowland, Lloyd, Jeremih and more.
