Say what you will about these so-called weed rappers, but you can’t knock their beat selections. Seriously, you can’t, because as Smoke DZA’s “Personal Party” proves, these dudes just know how to pick some of the finest, chillest production. It’s smooth but not to the point that it puts you to sleep. It’s made for recliners, leaning against a wall (no Fat Joe, not ever), and simply enjoying the music.
On “Personal Party,” ethereal vocal samples abound, as do muddy-cum-bursting drums, while DZA and frequent collaborator Curren$y treat the listener like a therapist. It’s not often we hear these guys vent, but they certainly pull it off. It’s also not often we hear a venting session sound this dope (pun intended).
