Hurricane Chris, you’ve created a monster! Looking to repeat the massive success of She’s Fine (Halle Berry), Lil’ Flip released a hip-hop tribute to Kim Kardashian, and Chingy threw his hat into the ring with an ode to Ms. Keri (neither of which got featured on the Booth). Straight outta Huntsville, Alabama, the Paper Route Gangstaz are bringing a much-needed dose of originality to the “lady name-drop” subgenre. Though the group have named this track after R&B songstress Keyshia Cole, Dawgy Baggz, Mata, Jhi-Ali, and Gunt aren’t actually talking about a woman, but rather a particularly potent brand of weed. Though the concept may leave some tempted to click the “1-star” button, Ain’t I producer Ben Frank‘s beat should get this record the thumbs-up from most of our regulars. Whether or not this new single suceeds in getting an endorsement from its namesake, fans can find plenty more Southern-rap bangers on the Gangstaz’ Rocket Fuel EP (due out soon, though E1 has yet to announce an exact date).
