Santino Corleon - Bad Guy
With a name like Santino Corleon, its no wonder he calls himself a Bad Guy. Seriously, he has the perfect name for a Sopranos mob boss or Godfather underling, and nobody would even bat an eye if he decided to go the organized crime route… although he definitely has a knack for this hip-hop thing. The artist’s DJBooth debut features a vibrant beat from producer Sparkz Tha Trakman, who masterfully places a boastful horn atop a chiming rhythm section. Corleon’s rhyme style is just as colorful as the production; in his verses, he exhibits an energetic delivery and a flow that’s irresistible despite its grinding, against-the-grain sound. If you’re craving more from the Cincy rapper, stay on the lookout for his debut project, Keep the Change, set for a summer release.
