In this day and age, it’s rare to have the kind of Neighbors who’ll drop by unannounced with a fruit basket or homemade cookies, just to make you feel welcome. Miami Beat Wave, ¡MAYDAY! and ArtOfficial, however, are all about that old-school sense of community. Today, the South Florida reppers show up on our doorstep to say WATTUP!, and they’ve brought a thoughtful gift: namely, the exclusive world premiere of their latest single. Whereas the lead single and title track off the crews’ joint mixtape was smooth and contemplative, this cut has a more urgent feel. Over Miami Beat Wave’s grainy synths and driving, midtempo percussion, emcees Wrekonize (¡MAYDAY!), Bernz (¡MAYDAY!), DaVincci (MBW) and Ao Logics (ArtOfficial) emphasize their drive to succeed in aggressive, adroitly-flowed verses. The Neighbors Tape has yet to be assigned a drop date, but fans can, of course, keep it locked for the latest leading up to its eventual release.
