Did you spaz out to Vince Staples’ “Blue Suede” last week? Did that glorious racket have you looking around your room for inexpensive objects to break? Me too. Get familiar with Toronto’s Marvin Thomas, a.k.a. Hagler Tyrant, then, who lassoed razor sharp synths and trunk-rattling low end into the monster beat that helps smack Staples’ debut Def Jam single outta the park. Hagler’s got more fire too, after co-production with Noah “40” Shebib on Drake’s confessional Nothing Was the Same album cut “Furthest Thing,” and hotter still, the alley-oop on Drake, 40, and Hit-Boy’s mammoth “Trophies.”
