Capo’s one of GBE’s more under-the-radar members. He’s less promoted than Ballout, less meme-ready than molly-guzzling Tadoe, less brand-friendly than Fredo. His debut tape proves, however, that he’s actually better at carrying a full-length project than all of the above (and, frankly, Keef at this point). Best demonstrated on “Come Wit Dis,” his flow is quick and intricate, and less heavy-lidded than most of the GBE guys. The tape occasionally strays from drill’s sullen death march, tossing chirpy, steel drum-heavy tracks in between its menacing moments. Up there with SD’s equally overlooked Life Of A Savage 3 tape, this is more entertaining than either of Keef’s recent tapes, and one of my favorite projects from the GBE this year.
Highlights: “I’m So High” and “Forgiatos” are super-catchy bop perfection. “Glo Gang Mafia” wrangles one of Keef’s best hooks since “Macaroni Time,” scoffing in his “Laughing To The Bank” voice, Hau hau hau hau hau, you’s a real nigga imposter, I’m guapped up.
WTF: I’ve waited for someone to make a song called “Thotty Party” all year, but the fact that it’s not a drill-themed interpolation of “Body Party” is a total missed opportunity.
