EP: Blanco, The Jacka & Messy Marv – One Hunnid [Prod. By Tha Bizness]
YG, Nipsey Hussle, Freeway, Trae the Truth Feature On Bay Area Trio’s Collaborative EP
In recent weeks, prominent Bay Area rapper Blanco has unleashed a flurry of releases. Starting with a series of free downloads of previously released albums, Blanco shared OBEY and Misfits, which are collaborative projects with The Jacka, Jonestown, which is with The Jacka and Messy Marv, and Raw, with Nipsey Hussle.
All of this was done with one thing in mind – building a buzz for a forthcoming new release, the One Hunnid EP, which releases today on iTunes. Teaming up once again with fellow Bay rappers The Jacka and Messy Marv, the trio enlists Grammy-winning production duo Tha Bizness. Featuring Compton rapper YG, Complex premiered the EP’s lead single, “9/11,” in March, calling the song “a smooth cut that is meant to bump at high volumes.” The second single, “Change,” features Nipsey Hussle, and was debuted by AllHipHop this past weekend. Tracks like “The Grassy Knoll” set a melancholy tone criticizing society and taking an analytical approach to politics, while the gangsta-fied “I Am Not A Krook” holds as a player’s anthem.
