PRGz, “Trap Like Mine” MP3

Listening to PRGz' "Trap Like Mine" late night over the weekend, it felt like we'd hit a turning point when it came to Huntsville rap. The reason the music from that city feels so exciting is that it came to us fully formed with a distinct sound. It touched on the slow mugginess of Dungeon Family and Organized Noize, but with a more technological bent, reflecting the fact that you can get any music on the internet, and it's all sample-able if you can figure out the best way to spit it back out through your own personal vision. This song is a turning point in the sense that it sounds like we expected—just more assured. The standout verse comes from the ever-increasingly impressive Jhi Ali, who uses his slightly nasal falsetto to reign in the song's whiny synths and tranced-out echoes. This is by no means the best song these dudes have ever done, but it's a good reflection of where they're going.
