Bass music has taken cues from hip-hop since day one, relentlessly flipping gangsta-leaning samples or ratcheting up a rapper’s track with bombastic low-end. But now that it finally has the notoriety it deserves, we can expect more of the big guns to jump at the chance of working directly with producers on primo joints. In comes “Smoke Bomb,” a cloudy collab seeing Snoop Dogg (who is sparking up his own DJ career as Snoopadelic) spit those explicit dgaf bars as Datsik provides a plume of glitchy swag that’s more lit than what Snoop is smoking on.
Overly excited to have worked with the Doggfather himself. He’s been one of my favorite rappers since I can remember—like straight-up since I was like 10 years old. Wanted to bring back some of that hellafide gangster flavor that got me into it from the start and mash it into something new, but hella familiar.
