B.I.G. (Bitch I Go) has been one of the biggest prospects as future quality rap music makers for me since I first heard their, actually since I realized B.I.G. stands for Bitch I Go, and since I first heard On Arrythang 15-40 months ago. After that, I heard Mango which led me to start eating mango like once every two months instead of once every two years. That's how much I liked the song. Also I started talking about 'going mango', no one really picked up, too many people dislike language, same crowd who I never thought could be interested in teenager rap about fruit. That's probaly why I never got around to posting anything about them, that and tha fact that I gave a fuck about posting at all for some time around then, 15-35 months ago.
Bitch I Go - On Arrythang
Bitch I Go - Mango
Anyhoo, Mr Wheeler, a supposedly real person with a twitter account hit me up on twitter with these two videos. They're from B.I.G. group member Roach Gigz solo mixtape Buckets & Booty Calls. So that's the purpose of this post. He also had a mixtape out right before last years christmas, which was even doper than the Bucket tape.. The other B.I.G. member is eithter Rappin 4 Tay's son or daughter, I mostly read everywhere it's his daughter but I does really looks like a dude, I really don't know.
Does anyone not like this video?
Hello internets! For those of you who already checked this out, I'm mean it's been out for damn near a week, what do you think? What does this part of the internet think of G-Side from Huntsville, Alabama?
I realize rap music from the southern part of the South, a rap group hipster-dude-person Diplo has somehow been involved with, this might not be what you think you could enjoy listening to. Some of you might not even wan't to read or even hear about it. Well, I'm writing about it, and I'm sharing the music because it is very very good and totally free. The people at the Huntsville based record label Slow Motion Soundz posted this album for the world to download themselfs and I don't even think physical copies are available yet.
I did write about G-Side about a year ago somewhere else, that' right about the when I first heard of them and was lucky enough to hear their music. Beats are something way different, all the little tiny sounds and weird samples they use, weird techno samples that doesn't sound too like garbage like all techno ever made.. I have never been able to explain music in a way anyone could understand, so I'm not even going to try this time...
I have to say I'm still not as sold on H.I.P. as I was on their last album Starshipz & Rocketz, but nonetheless I consider it one of the best releases of the year. Throughout quality, only thing annoying is the skits, but when are skits not annoying right? Compared to Starshipz & Rocketz the two rappers ST 2 Lettaz and Clova are even better than they where then, and The Block Beatz production is amazing this time too.
Also, they sample DJ Magic Mike and use it as a chorus, you know I'm feeling the bass.
So here it is:
G-Side - Huntsville International (H.I.P.)
1. Intro - Rob Breezy
2. Huntsville International ft Sound of Silence (Prod: Block Beataz)
3. So Gone (Prod: L-Don)
4. What's It All About (Prod: Johnny Juliano)
5. Bandz Ft DJ Cunta (Prod: Bossman)
6. Paradise (Prod: Mick Vegas)
7. Matthew Africa Speaks
8. Auro Ft P.T. (Prod: Mick Vegas)
9. College Chicks (Prod: Block Beataz)
10. This Groove Ft P.H. (Prod: Block Beataz)
11. Feel The Ft 6 Tre Gangsta & AC (Prod: Block Beataz)
12. Who's Hood Ft Yelawolf (Prod: Block Beataz)
13. This Is Life (Prod: P.T.)
14. In The Rain Ft Bentley (Prod: Block Beataz)
15. Rising Sun Ft Kristmas (Prod: Block Beataz)
16. So Wonderful Ft Chrystal Carr, G-Mane And SupaKing (Prod: Block Beataz)

Free shit!! There is probaly a whole bunch of people who don't know about Smigg Dirtee, but you should. And the free album is obviously a perfect opportunity. I mostly know of him from his numerous features on A-Wax's albums, those two must have made more music together than most duos. Great music.
Anyhow, Smigg is from Sacramento and has also stayed in San Diego and Vallejo, or so says his myspace. Besides working with A-Wax he has worked with well known artists such as Yukmouth, C-Bo, Messy Marv, J-Stalin, Max B and many more. But I never did check his solo work before. Mostyl when I like an artist I just wait till they drope something new and check that out rather than going thru all the records they dropped since they started rapping at 11, fuck that. Only solo song of him I've noticed before really is this,
Smigg Dirtee - Stay Fresh
...which was featured on a Doey Rock hosted mixtape from last year. Banging.
And here is a video to one of the tracks.
So, he is industry certified, but whatever, what matters is this album is hard as fuck. Not that he yells hella much, but it's some hard gangsta shit. I don't mind that. One unexpected thing doh, to me he don't really come off as hard looking gangster. His glasses and all. He looks smart, not like a gang banger. Not that I would know doh..
Check the video below and download the album if you like it, cause it's free. Courtesy of the mans twitter.
Random quote from album:
'come at me wrong yo that is not kosher,
you're not hard, i'm thinking pillows, on sofas'
That kinda cracked me up. Probaly because I don't like cushions, they are too soft.
Smigg Dirtee - Cross Em' Out & Put A K
1. Bloc Move
2. Did It On The Streets ft. Mack Twon
3. Ridin Out ft. Black Mikey & Boog
4. Fuc Them Other Niggas ft. I-Rocc, Mack Twon & Nuttz
5. Rap Sheet ft. Ricky Ruckus & El Cajon Tez
6. Posse Up (Remix) ft. Poodeezy & Young Rebz (prod. Vince V)
7. Rep Yo Hood ft. Techniec
8. Tell Yo Bitch 2 Come Here
9. Stand Tall ft. I-Rocc (prod. Haze Banga)
10. I'm A Gangsta
11. Come Home (prod. Sea Notes)
12. In This Life (prod. Vince V)
Oh yeah my favorite track is "Fuc Them Other Niggas". Hard shit.
