“The Kickback” F. Smoke DZA

    To call Maryland a hot spot for hip-hop talent would be a gross overstatement, but the region has spawned one particular promising MC of late by the name of Uno Hype. Fresh off the success of his Fxck The Hype mixtape with DJ Black Diamond, the aptly-named rapper reconnects with Harlem’s Kushed God Smoke DZA (who guested on the aforementioned mixtape) for this new joint, “The Kickback.” The pair weave smooth rhymes into Jay Card’s ethereal instrumental, making it a keeper for that smoking playlist of yours (come on, we all have one).
