OverDoz. Rename Themselves the Cheetah Boys, Drop ‘Merry DESTmas’ EP
It's been a relatively quiet 2016 for Overdoz, but yesterday (Dec. 27) the West Coast collective returned with a new six-track EP called Merry Destmas.
For the new project, which you can stream above, Overdoz. is running with a new name: the Cheetah Boys. On track one, "Condom Broke," the Crenshaw natives rap about their sex game with some NSFW lyrics over a banging beat. The rest of the EP follows suit, with vulgar lyrics and hot flows over addictive instrumentals.
The Merry Destmas release comes after Overdoz. dropped "New Ish" and "Oldie But Goodie" a couple weeks back.
Fans are still patiently awaiting Overdoz.’s debut album 2008. Their first single, “Last Kiss,” dropped last year. XXL spoke to Overdoz. about the upcoming album and found out that the RCA/Polo Grounds signees have been working heavily with Organized Noize and Pharrell.
“What I liked about Organized Noize, they wasn’t scared to say, ‘Sing it like this,’” said Kent Jamz. “I’m not the type for people to really tell that to me. Producers usually let me loose and I can be in the booth for like two hours. Noize would tell me, like, ‘Come out real quick, sing it like this.’ Then I’ll sing it my way and they’ll tell me, ‘Come right back out and sing it like this.’ The dude who’s telling me is the same guy who helped make ‘Waterfalls’ by TLC.”
