Although inexplicably missing the first verse in its video form, Fat Trel’s "Swishers and Liquor" is an easy highlight of last month's Nightmare on E Street. Big K.R.I.T.'s production sounds almost quintessentially New York, the claustrophobic keyboard loop more Queensbridge than the Southern comfort food he's known for, but it's to the song's great advantage that he's diversified. Trel, meanwhile, continues to be a fount of raw charisma, a profoundly large personality on record.
