If you’ve heard Drekidd’s previous efforts on the Booth – let’s pull up American Dream and Lights Out – you know that the Cali representative has a penchant for turning out enjoyable records that still contain some seriously deep messages. But even the most dedicated revolutionary has to take the time to just kick back and relax. In fact, for at least tonight, Everybody Chillin‘ in Dre’s vicinity. Constant production company HeartBeat takes his foot off the gas for Chillin’s beat, powering some serious vibed out keys with a contrastingly uptempo production line. It’s a vibe so nice that fellow Angeleno Co$$ has to get in on the action, describing his plans to please the small army of female fans that can be found following him. It’s a template that Drekidd fills in as well with appropriately laid back verses that refuse to swim in the shallow end, but are still more than happy to float in the deep end. Fans can expect a plethora of more outspoken music on Drekidd’s upcoming project, Liberation, set to break free on our sister site RefinedHype on October 12.
