Keep reading to see what's good.
Capo Coleone featuring Meech & Mac Veli - "100 S.H.O.T.S."
The production on this track is aimed directly at the clubs and it serves the purpose well with a popping synths and an occasional bass drop. Capo Coleone (aka Il Capo) runs the chorus with a touch of aggressive lyricism. Mac Veli and Meech feature on the track, and both fit well with completely different tones in their voices, giving the track balance. The big house party theme of the video gives it a throwback kind of feel.
G-Slick featuring Dzo - "In the Sky"
Denver's newest signee to legendary Rap-a-lot Records drops a new song with Dzo, a catchy uptempo track with interesting production. The beat starts with a clap and a metal drum before G-Slick drops in with the chorus. Slick's voice is identifiable and sleek, and on this particular joint, he rides the beat with a flowing type of rhyme scheme. Dzo, a longtime collaborator with Slick who adds some dope bars with his signature raspy voice, is a fitting feature for this track.
