The only predictable element of an Ace Cino track is the Meadow Soprano clip that opens every song. The Michigan rapper hasn’t quite figured out what his style is, and he tests out different genres on his SoundCloud page. For some time now, he’s been bouncing between traditional cold Detroit-based street rap, and records where he submerges his vocals in AutoTune and gets into his feels. Though I wouldn’t say that every song he makes is technically good, I’ve found his experimentation interesting. He moves into new territory on his latest single, “2 Different Models,” deciding to simply whisper under its groovy piano-driven beat. While this should be gimmicky, it really is more mesmerizing than anything else he’s made.
With artists releasing songs at a fast and furious pace, it’s difficult for the average hip-hop head to keep track of it all—no matter how tapped in they are. That’s why we created The Ones, a daily post to highlight the song you need to hear.
