Video: Propain, "Smiling Faces"

Ultra-promising Houston rapper Propain has the entire package. His flow is a percussive force, and the friction created as it barrels through his thick drawl gives off an incredible energy. Propain's lyrics—Now it's my trunk that's knockin /Sound like the drum alive—are dense without being overly wordy and resonate with authority. The "Smiling Faces" beat, courtesy producer DJ Don, samples the Temptations, and it's everything you could want in a big debut instrumental. It comes from Propain's upcoming album Dangerous Minds, which follows the free tape he released on Bandcamp last year, entitled #Departure. (via DGB)

As a bonus, download an MP3 of Propain's appearance on Short Dawg’s The Adventures of Drankenstein mixtape. He completely kills this one, too.
