Tony Montana Flow – [Chief Keef]

The work ethic of Chicago’s very won Chief Keef is pretty much unmatched when comparing his discography to other artists’, and even though this year might seem relatively quiet for him, that doesn’t mean he hasn’t dropped off some incredible releases. In previous years, he has released numerous mixtapes and projects seemingly every few months, and even though we haven’t received a full-length project in 2021, he’s still working as hard as ever.

It has been quite some time since he announced that he’d be teaming up with Mike WiLL Made-It for a collaborative album, and even though there is no word as to when that can be expected to drop, all of the singles that they have put out together have been absolute heaters, so I truly hope we get more information on this album as soon as possible. Nonetheless, Sosa is a Windy city legend, and it doesn’t matter if he drops full-length projects, mixtapes, EPs, or singles because I’m going to tune in regardless.

Out of nowhere, Keef decided to bless fans with a brand-new track entitled “Tony Montana Flow”, and although I feel like its release went way more under the radar than it should have, it’s still an all-out hit, and I couldn’t help but talk about it. As soon as you press play, the momentous and almost frantic melody hits you in the face as thumping 808s and terse percussion enter into the picture to give Keef a foundation to do his thing.

When he finally comes in to spit, he begins with a super laid-back, nonchalant flow that is full of personality even if he doesn’t really raise his energy levels too high to begin with. This changes as the song goes on, though, as he begins to feed his engine and get his enthusiasm up while showing off some interesting and creative vocal inflections that work unbelievably well within this record. Chief Keef is always going to have a spot on my playlist no matter what he releases, and “Tony Montana Flow” is the exact reason why because it’s so animated and aggressive, making it a song you need to peep as soon as you find some time.
