The drug business has historically always been a muse for Hip-Hop. Throughout the history of the genre, most of our favorite artists have admitted to a past in either selling drugs or buying them, either way indulging in the business. While the realities of the drug business are harsh and unforgiving, it has provided some of the BEST music ever created. “Dead Presidents” – part two of course – “Many Men” and “10 Crack Commandments” will always stand tall as genre favorites, sparking an inspiration in many former dealers everywhere. One of those people happens to be Las Vegas native Smog The AK, who checks in with his new scathing ode to Cocaine, “Escobar”.
Firing off Coke bars like, “F*ck the weaker plugs, I slang that overdose” and “You wanna feel numb, or taste the cut?” over ‘90s like production, AK paints a vidid picture of what he says used to be his reality. “I used to slang to support my music and other necessities, so that’s where this came from,” says the Las Vegas rapper to RESPECT. Mag. The short but sweet track is a sound you can expect to hear more often from AK he says as well, “I’ve been working on my sound a lot, I’m challenging myself and change is never a bad thing.” This is the first release of the year from AK, who graced our pages last year with “6IX” featuring Black Smurf and his tape, The Black Files EP, though you can expect more heat from the rhymer.
Check out the chilling track below and be sure to keep an eye on the underrated emcee.
