Richie Rich featuring P.A.C. and Kreepa - "All Day, All Night"
Richie Rich drops a street anthem about his everyday hustle with enticing bravado. The beat sways from side to side in rhythm with the chorus, anchored by a slow drawl in the delivery that resonates easily. Veteran Arapahoe Trues MC P.A.C. almost steals the show with his verse, adding a reggae-style flow, while young protégé Kreepa adds a drop-style rhyme scheme on the third verse. Richie Rich is an upcoming talent, and combined with P.A.C., a pioneer in the scene, and Kreepa, next up himself, the result is a good mix of styles.
Monte Burns - "We the Future"
The production here is uptempo and has some EDM qualities to it, with its harmonized strings and pulsing, laser-like chimes. Monte Burns employs a trap-style, double assonance pattern for most of the song, showing his strengths in the composition. The sound is very progressive, even futuristic, and Burns's delivery brings a street feel to it that complements it well.
