DC Meets Atlanta on Yung Gleesh & Peewee Longway’s “Turned Out”

Washington DC rapper Yung Gleesh is joined by Atlanta’s Peewee Longway for the energetic “Turned Out.”

September 22, 2014

Washington DC's Yung Gleesh shares the same slurred, melodic auto-tuned style of fellow District rappers Fat Trel and Shy Glizzy. On "Turned Out," off his recently released Cleansides Finest 3, Gleesh leans on that hook-heavy style to his benefit, and is joined by Atlanta staple Peewee Longway, landing from a different planet altogether. Where Gleesh mushes his words together--dashowahtuhndowt--Longway's bars hit precise in sharp contrast: move packs I ain't never seen a drought, that's word to my DC clout (Gleeshy!) It's a dizzying listen, bridging two cities through a common love for the come up.
