EkillaOffDaBlockk – “Park Boys”

Content

If you want to get familiar with the Baby Stone Gorillas (a South East L.A. crew that recently erupted onto the scene), a proper starting point would be EkillaOffDaBlockk’s new mixtape Blockk Baby. Not only does the tape serve as an introduction to the crew and their revolving network of tough talking, bandana-waving West Coast MCs, but it also highlights how they’re merging the sounds of new L.A. street rap with those of the past. While the G-Funk melody of “Walk Em Down” might make you wonder if Nate Dogg is about to lay down a hook, the thudding 808s could fit on any L.A. mixtape in the last couple of years. On “Park Boys,” retro keys are laid under fast-paced Enrgy-like drums. Ekilla effortlessly rides these era jumping instrumentals, and his high-pitched snarl is perfect for cold-hearted shit talk or taking a painful trip down memory lane.

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.
