Racks Stuffed Inna Couch – [Chief Keef]

I love writing about Chief Keef, but at the same time, I struggle because he has made such an impact on me and my music taste over the years that I feel like I can’t do him justice. I mean, he became huge during some very formative years for me, and because he truly pioneered an entire movement in a genre that I loved so much, there is no way for me to completely encompass his influence on my music-listening tendencies.

As time went on, people claimed that he isn’t what he once was any longer, and even though I think any artist would completely struggle to top Finally Rich after it was released, I firmly believe that he had some absolute hits that got overlooked way too much. I was actually just talking about his 2018 tape The Cozart with a coworker today, and because it was a project he had never experienced let alone heard of before, I gave him a few recommendations and he was shocked at the fact that he had never come across the mixtape prior.

Along with that, he has recorded some guest verses in recent memory that topped most other verses I’ve heard in general lately, so I think he is only continuing to go up, or glo up as he might specify. Even more exciting, after almost a decade since the original dropped, Sosa is gearing up to drop Almighty So 2, the follow-up to his acclaimed mixtape that he released in 2013, and I couldn’t be more excited about the latest single “Racks Stuffed Inna Couch”.

Young Malcolm takes the reigns on production, utilizing intense percussion and lively horns, but even with as busy of a beat as this is, Keef shines brighter than ever. Although his cadences never get too intricate or complex, his explosive lines and over-the-top energy brings this record to limits I once dreamed of a few years ago, and I think this is going to set up the forthcoming project to be one of the most entertaining releases of the year, at least for day one fans of Chief Keef.
