Are y’all paying attention to what’s going on in Raleigh, North Carolina? Because you should be. On this week’s Soundcloud explorations, I came across “2 Glocks” by Mali NSB, featuring fellow Raleigh rapper Tanna Da Demon (formerly of Raleigh-based rap group BBO). There’s not much else to say except that the song is live as hell, and that both women can rap their asses off.
Mali’s first up, her hook and verse going in non-stop over a creepy, Goosebumps-reminiscent piano melody that’s laid atop an extra-hard, fast-as-shit beat. Tanna Da Demon drops in around 1:30, her flow a little more playful but equally as relentless. It's a fiery tag team of a track, one that brings me back to some of my favorite older, uptempo cuts from Chicago’s Sasha Go Hard. These ladies go!!!
Both don’t have too much music out at the moment, but I’m excited to hear what else comes from each of them. In the meantime, peep my current faves from Mali and Tanna below.
