You already know what it is, but now it’s better. T.R.O.Y. forum regular, vaporized, went and laced the acapellas of A.W.O.L. with some of the highly sought after Hydra Beats instrumentals. Whether you thought A.W.O.L was dope, mediocre, or garbage, you’re gonna want to give this another listen right about now. It’s a completely different look over these mostly mellow mid 90’s soundscapes. I’ve had this in constant rotation for a couple of weeks now, and can tell you that this will be something to revisit often in the future.
Two tracks had to be left off because they just didn’t work. And that may be for the best because we all know this hip hop thing can’t be forced. My top 3 tracks at this moment are “Never Change”, “Street Life”, and “Chillin”. I’ll leave you previews of these three below the tracklist.
