Wilks is back with another tight Ghouse track featuring vocal cuts from the Notorious one. Something can be said for sampling rap vocals sparingly, and Wilks delivers just the right amount of Biggie. The strumming synth that echoes throughout the track couples nicely with the low end bumps to round out a solid layer for Biggie’s voice to rest on.
Keep an eye on this dude cause his shit is on point and he’s popping up at summer events all over LA
Oh and I fucking love the album cover!
