Maffew Ragazino and KXNG Crooked Snap on “Gouda (Remix)”
Produced by 5ickness, the busy track is paced by alarm sounds, chords similar to those used in Travi$ Scott's "Antidote" and a punching drum cadence.
Brownsville's Ragazino kicks things off first with a slow flow spitting about his propensity to stack major dollar amounts. Next, Crooked brings the west coast flavor to the party upping the wordplay pace to nearly Bone Thugs levels. "I'm just a walking court case/You little niggas stay in dwarfs place/You don't have the reach to box with God, end up in a box on God taking up morgue space," he raps. The track is now available on iTunes.
Two weeks ago, Crooked dropped the collab project with Statik Selektah, STATIK KXNG. The 10-song album features previously released songs “Everybody Know” and “Dead or in Jail.” The only guest appearances come from Termanology who appears on the track “Let’s Go” and Jessica Quintero who sings on the aforementioned “Dead or in Jail.”
Maff, who has been a player on the New York City underground scene for a few years, put out the mixtape Bronwsville's Jesus in 2014 and has worked with the likes of Action Bronson, Troy Ave, Sean Price, Termanology and others.
This is a fire East meets West collab matching bars with two more than verbally adequate MCs.
