Looming, sublime soundscapes and Tame Impala samples aren't always the make-up of Southern rap albums, but Huntsville, Alabama visionaries G-Side, along with producers, Block Beataz, have always had a knack for reinvention. That's not to say that their new album, Island, isn't loaded with their typical homegrown, smoothed out fare. What's happening here is the perfect fever dream on a top-down drive to Waffle House. You can cop the record, out today on Slow Motion Soundz, over at the duo's Bandcamp.
