Apparently, Texas via California rapper Snow Tha Product had an exceptional showing at The BET cypher last night. While I haven’t had the chance to check out said cypher yet, I do know that I like what I hear from the rising emcee. Her new song “1 Time” features a skilled, bass-heavy sampling of The xx’s “Crystalised”, and a notably thirsty (yet effective) Ty Dolla $ign who acts as Snow’s foil.
The back and forth between Snow’s quick, calculated flow and Dolla $ign’s persuasive crooning is the song’s crux, as the latter tries his best to kick it one time, while the former gives her primary reasoning why that can’t happen. And all of it works as an R&B-infected rap cut, perfect for when you’re trying to get the person you’ve had your eye on (single or not) back to the crib. Also, did Ty Dolla just give us the best hook of the year? Snow Tha Product’s mixtape, 40z in First Class, is coming soon.
