Alley Boy, Definition of F*ck Shit 2

Of late, Duct Tape Ent. has been cultivating a strong movement in Atlanta and throughout the south. At the head of Tha Mob is Alley Boy, the Atlantic Records signed CEO of DTE, who looks to bring street-bred music to the masses with Definition of F*ck Shit 2.

In both sound and content, the mixtape is a fiery package of boisterous bangers. Street savvy rhymes lay over thumping beats to create the life-in-the-trap narrative played out on much of DOFS2, heard on songs like “F*ck With Me,” “Fake Nigga,” “Rappin’ & Robbin’ Pt. 2” and “Tools.” Though these can feel repetitive, they are exactly what one looks for from an Alley Boy project. The most successful and nuanced of the bunch is “Rob Me A Nigga,” a melodic threat-filled track featuring excellent showings from Freddie Gibbs and Big K.R.I.T., who provides both the hook and the beat.

“Ease The Pain” is a deviation, both in its soulful sound and deeply personal rhymes, from most of the tape—but this is a welcomed addition: “No way to ease the pain/Tears fallin’ in the rain/My cousin Sean died from an aneurism in his brain,” Alley raps with honesty. “When I Die,” the album closer, provides a similarly introspective take over light keys and unrelenting drums.

At times showing Alley Boy’s more subtle side, the majority of Definition of Fuck Shit 2 is an full of brutal and bombastic anthems that, sure to make any listener want to get into some fuck shit themselves. —Adam Fleischer

    I like Alley Boy and the DTM movement. He got some good artist to support him and he puts work in on his craft. Peep his self made videos and listen to his lyrics. That issue w/YungLA was a proving ground situation. Mufukas owe a real nigga a listen’n too! Realniggashit…

    This only got an L? XXL is usually on point but of all of Alley Boy’s projects, this is by far the best one. No shade but I like DOFS 2 better than FREEBRICKS. Freebricks should be L and DOFS 2 should be XL
