Before we get into Cousin Stizz’ new track “STP” (and we will) can we take a collective second to applaud the year Take A Daytrip is having right now?
It’s hard to imagine having a better year than they had last year, but they may have already topped it; shit maybe just in the past few weeks alone. Recently, they have been behind cuts from Big Sean, Cordae, Kevin Gates, Token’s song on the Madden soundtrack, all with “Panini” and “Rodeo” climbing up the charts. They are gonna need a new tag; this shit is past ten.
A producer’s ability to create smash hits with a distinct sound, all while fitting a wide range of artists, is not an easy skill to master but Take A Daytrip has done it and perhaps nowhere is that more clear than this one with one of the more unique sounding emcees in the game in Stizz.
Here, Stizz brings his off-kilter flow dripping with a cool, unconcerned attitude and still manages to fit in with fit the resonant, pulsing beat to create a song that has the aura of when you are almost too fucked up; knowing you may be at your limit, but being too inebriated to care.
Armed with a big single — equipped with glossy set visuals — to announce his Trying To Find My Next Thrill album, Stizz is definitely coming out of the gate swinging.
