The Scoop: Southern hip-hop royalty has risen.
T.Y. is the son of original Cash Money Hot Boy B.G., and is carrying his father’s legacy respectively. The young New Orleans rapper teamed up with Jet Life Records and unleashed a 10-track mixtape properly titled Son Of A Gangsta.
The Spin: Just like the artwork, the tracks are very reminiscent of the early Cash Money era. 10 tracks of smooth-gangsta flows over aggressive bounce beats. T.Y. sounds like he converted his studio into a time machine and went back to late ’90s to cook up the classic feel.
The tape includes Hot Boy legend Turk and Juvenile’s son, Young Juve, and of course fellow Jet Life artists Curren$y and Young Roddy.
