Bit with the Fangs – [CEO Trayle] ft. [Gunna] & [Nechie]

I can’t believe the amount of time that has passed since Young Thug, Gunna, and a handful of other YSL stars have been locked up, and until the system hears us, we’re going to keep preaching the “Free YSL” movement for as long as it takes. With these legends not able to hit the studio, any song that crosses my radar that features any of the YSL crew is an essential listen, so I was beyond excited to find out that CEO Trayle dropped “Bit with the Fangs” featuring Gunna and Nechie.

CEO Trayle has been building so much momentum over the last year or two, which is why I have had him on my extensive list of emcees to catch up with, and even though he didn’t end up signing with YSL when Thug asked him last year (he ended up signing with the powerhouse label 10K Projects), his bond with them is stronger than ever, and their chemistry shines in this record.

Produced by Stribb and Soulm8, the melody is cloudy but the way the percussion and 808s hit really breathes some ear-catching energy into this hit. Trayle’s scratchy and aggressive delivery catches your attention right off the bat in the chorus, leading into Gunna’s smooth and consistent verse that has his skill set on full display in an abundance of different forms.

Nechie is another name that I need to get more in tune with as well, but his verse is full of inventive cadences and this overarching smoothness that I was pleasantly surprised by to the fullest extent, and I think it was a contribution that with undeniably have listeners excited to run this record back time and time again. I am super excited to get more familiar with the exciting sound that CEO Trayle is creating, and after hearing this track, I know that I have a lot of catching up to do so I can fully grasp his potential in this cutthroat industry.
