Stalley ft. Scarface – “Swangin’”
Few emcees who hail from outside Houston have ever accurately captured the sound of that made the City of Drank the hip-hop titan it is today; however, Stalley breaks that mold with the slab-certified “Swangin’.” Although Stalley definitely delivers an impressive performance on the cut, it’s the lush, ’90s synth production that makes this song great. It also doesn’t hurt that Face Mob blesses the MMG up-and-comer with a verse for the song. - SR
