High-Energy Badass Hip Hop
"ACCESS DENIED." "Wanna bet?" So opens the epic ghetto-funk/crunk track "Go Hard," which reminds me a little bit of Waka Flaka (though I wonder if it was just the song title that put that into my head). The production on this track is seriously badass, and the producer might deserve a medal. The beat is composed of a simple electric-guitar and 808 drum beat, which normally isn't enough to win me over, but "Go Hard" employs these simple sounds with some funky artistry that'll get anybody nodding their head to the beat. Kay Racks has a high-pitched, shouting rap style that feels rare in today's laid-back hip hop culture, almost more fitting of the Run-DMC days. It borders on abrasive, but would be a good fit for a high-energy rap show.
