JPEGMAFIA and Danny Brown, two of the most innovative voices in the hip-hop scene, have recently released ‘Scaring the Hoes: DLC Pack’, a four-track expansion of their highly acclaimed collaborative project from this year. This release is a testament to their creative prowess, pushing the boundaries of hip-hop with their unique sound and lyrical dexterity.
The EP opens with “Guess What B**h, We Back He!”, a track that showcases the duo’s classic flow and formula, featuring woozy synths and hard-hitting drums. The following track, “HERMANOS”, takes a more laid-back direction with a breezy guitar sample, reminiscent verses, and a wild outro.
The third track, “Tell Me Where To Go”, is a chilled-out cut with a great Al Green sample, calm delivery, and a solid boom-bap rhythm. The final song brings back the gospel chops with distorted drums and a hilarious but sharp acapella outro from Danny Brown.
