Owww, the inaugural leak off Thad Reid‘s forthcoming street album, could hardly have been more aptly titled, since it was a massive hit with most of our readers (and getting hit hurts, you know?). With world premiere numero dos, things are slightly less straightforward – while Reid and his collaborators do indeed deliver the lyrical freshness that’s become their par-for-the-course, those looking for a routine, everyday experience may find Same as We Ever Was a disappointment. Don. S, producer of Reid’s last feature, switches his game up dramatically here, cooking up a street-ready synth-brass instrumental as the Blue Collar Muzik rapper and his DMV-based cohorts, Inglorious Beta emcee K-Beta and D.C. buzzmaker RAtheMC, fire off their most potent lyrical ammunition in verses brimming with vivid braggadocio. Think Thad Reid hit the bullseye on this one? Then add his DJBooth-sponsored Target Practice mixtape to your list of projects to download this Tuesday, April 20.
