Last year, one of our first Album Of The Week picks was Neffy Got Wings, a breezy and charismatic full-length mixtape collaboration from the frisky young Bay Area rapper Nef The Pharaoh and the hooky, inventive Texas-based producer Cardo. And now it’s starting to look like Cardo is making a new-year tradition of these … More »
The Cardo produced Big Bossin Vol.1 MC’d by Payroll Giovani & is exactly the sort of warm-feels we all need on those dark-at-noon winter days that are grey at sunrise, street-lamp lit for 20 hours a day. Classic gangster funk reigns in Big Bossin Vol.1, w3rk’d out in UV-rays of forward thinking production, while remaining old school, narrated by complimentary voice harmonizing in anti-scaled spit rhymed in an ouroboros of play-making. Payroll Giovanni & Cardo complete that vibe of Big Bossin Vol.1 with strapped up, ready to spark lyrics that entwine breathtaking beats that shatter the most expensive to paper-plate speakers. Ride a little slower. Heat up the clip. Relax in the game:
Milwaukee favorite Maajei Vu links with YeX and Cardo for “Genuine,” the latest single from Vu’s upcoming Solara Ultima EP. After hearing this joint, I need a whole project from Vu, YeX and Cardo — somebody make that happen.
Check out “Genuine” below the jump. Solara Ultima coming soon.
As the saying goes, if you don’t work you don’t eat, which is why Payroll’s work ethic allows him to eat plentifully. Pay is the type of artist to take the good with the bad and still come up on a bag. Feel me? Working along side super-producer Cadro, Payroll has found a sound that reflects his persona. Check out Payroll Giovanni’s new video “Came Up Off Work” shot by the one and only Jerry Productions.
This also seems to be the first look into Payroll and Cardo’s Big Bossin’ Vol. 2 album, which could be out before the year ends. In our opinion, the first edition is a classic and a top contender for album of the year. So praise up for them getting back at it for round two. These two are brilliant together. At the end of the clip, Pay teases a Sosa Dreamz project, which is scheduled to drop this month. Wow.
