Like any self-respecting rapper, the life of Entourage star Vincent Chase is filled with beautiful women and luxuries. What’s more, from Saigon’s regular role to the introduction of Charles Hamilton to the larger world, every week HBO’s hit show seems to be aimed at giving a “new” hip-hopper their shine. This past week, as Vinny Chase courted AV model Sasha Grey, Freesol got their chance to shine as Don’t Give It Away played during the credits. The Memphis-based group, whose DJ Benzi-hosted mixtape RockNRolla is available on the DJBooth now, recruits hitmaker Jim Jonsin on the production here, resulting in a sound – check the spacey production and piano keys lurking in the background - that reminds me of Timbaland and Static Major in the late ‘90s. Even better, Freesol’s lyrics and flow more than hold their own, while the catchy hook seems to be the brightest element in the mix, giving us a great song overall. While Don’t Give It Away is only a promo single, with momentum like this an album can’t be far off.
