When your hustle starts to grow so big that a single nation can no longer hold it, then there’s only one thing to do about it: go World Wide! The latest West Coast representative to assert himself on the national scale, Balance celebrates his global preeminence on the latest leak off his long-awaited new EP. Dae One goes old-school on the production tip, serving up a gritty brass loop to back the Oakland native’s imperious braggadocio and MAC-toting ‘hood talk. An international baller requires a world-class crew and, appropriately, the freestyle series contributor rolls with two formidable spitters: flanking the headliner, Little Brother alum Rapper Big Pooh opens the record on an aggressively witty note, and South Bronx emcee Chaundon brings the cut to a close with a wry, cynical take on the state of the (major-label) game: “You see the dopest rappers, they are no longer alive / Still I can see Jay, but he’d prolly have me killed. / Or sign me—either way, preventing me to build.” Does this earth-shaking banger leave you craving more? You’ll find what you seek on Balance and Dae One’s B-Dae EP, scheduled to drop October 4.
