Mixtape: From Nothing to Something 2
Producer: Ty Dolla $ign, D.R.U.G.S.
Ty Dolla $ign of the D.R.U.G.S. production team put together this Cali sunset should-be smash for Joe Moses. Moses and Ty dropped the Whoop! tape together last year, and it was a solid release; Joe's latest solo tape is choppier, but the D.R.U.G.S. team's wistful production for "Fresh Out" would be a hit in a just universe. The thumping beat has a groove similar to many recent Southern Cali club-oriented "ratchet" tracks from the past few years (think "Rack City"), but its drop-top palm tree vibe gives singer T-Lanez space to fill in the expansive pop-R&B chorus.
