So last week, Chicago recording artist, Trap Money DD released his debut mixtape, Make Amerikkka Trap Again. The project is a bit raw, but it is still a really solid project. The content aligns perfectly with the title. The opening skit is the perfect introduction. For all of those Snowfall fans, Franklin Saint's voice is definitely welcomed and appreciated.
Now, for this to be a debut, Trap Money DD has some top notch production from J. Parker. Content-wise, the lyrics match perfectly. "All That" is a clear cut banger. Think of the late Bankroll Fresh's classic "Hot Boy". The cadence is similar. Clearly, the content is slightly different, but it's probably the closest comparison to a mainstream track. Personally, it's my favorite track. In addition to the actual song, I'm a bigger fan of the video. It was super genius to incorporate the legendary Baba's Restaurant! What?
(Let's make one thing perfectly clear: the best Baba's is in Country Club Hills, Illinois! If you know, you know! That's our right to passage! Like I said, if you know, you know!)
As I digress, Trap Money DD kept it all in the neighborhood with his tracks "Backends" and "Red Diamond" featuring Caz. The addition of Caz makes the song more complete. It's like a crispy steak philly and a frozen lemonade. It just makes it complete! (There's another Baba's reference. If you know, you know!) Caz brings the heat and a little bit of polish to the track.
An added bonus to the project was a brief skit featuring internet sensation, Haha Davis. It gives the tape a bit of comedy relief, although Donald Trump's voice is a joke as well.
MATA has a few songs that can make the club go crazy. In my opinion, "All That", "Red Diamond", and "Rules to Trap" possess that potential. "Red Diamond" is the more obvious choice, but "All That" just goes DUMB! The baseline has perfect timing on the beat. The words are catchy as hell and is easy to remember. Songs like that make for anthems. Let's face facts: it's a really good song! It has the most crossover appeal, period.
With that said, check out Trap Money DD's new mixtape Make Amerikkka Trap Again on SoundCloud.
