Audio: 03 Greedo – “Bands In Da Basement” ft. Chief Keef (Prod. by Ron-Ron)
The Endlessly Creative L.A. Rapper Continues to Release Music While Imprisoned as He Teams Up With Chief Keef for the First Taste of His Next Project
“The latest hope of Los Angeles hip-hop” – Rolling Stone
“The Watts rapper is an essential piece of West Coast rap” – Pitchfork
“Los Angeles street-rap weirdo 03 Greedo is one of the most exciting and inventive voices around right now, and he already released one of the best rap albums of the year” – Stereogum
“Literally no one else on Leonardo DiCaprio’s green Earth talks flavorful cash sh*t as wonderfully as 03 Greedo.” – Complex
“This mixtape is a step away from his usual sunny LA sound, but 03 Greedo knew what he was doing when he enlisted the help of Kenny Beats. This link up has resulted in an entertaining, yet simple record, the concept expertly executed. ‘Netflix and Deal’ is a cinema experience – minus the over-expensive snacks.” – NME
One of the rap game’s most restlessly creative minds, 03 Greedo spent the months leading to his prison sentence recording countless songs with a long list of quality collaborators. Ready to reveal the latest fruits of his labor, Greedo shares “Bands In Da Basement,” his first new single of 2020. A simmering, percolating slice of West Coast rap, “Bands In Da Basement” finds the Alamo Records signee mixing easy melodies and biting flows, teetering at the edges of his vocal range as he recalls his trapping past: “Bands in the basement, money in the mattress/Work in the walls, I got millions in my mansion.” Produced by Ron-Ron, a frequent Greedo collaborator, new song boasts a guest verse from Chief Keef, another experimenter who blurs the lines between singing and rapping, who delivers an auto-tuned, ad-lib-laden 16.
Undeterred by his extended prison stay in Amarillo, TX, Greedo released three new projects in 2019. Packed with exciting guest stars and countless movie references, Netflix & Deal garnered universal critical acclaim, named one of the best projects of 2019 by Complex, Vice, and DJ Booth. Earlier in the year, Greedo connected with Mustard for Still Summer In The Projects, home to the hit single “Trap House” ft. Shoreline Mafia (35 million Spotify streams). Rounding out a year of big-name collaborations, Greedo shared Meet The Drummers, a collaborative EP with Travis Barker.
In addition to his musical output, Greedo made his prison stay a productive one by earning his GED. With over 3,000 songs recorded, even a cell can’t stop 03 Greedo from taking over the game.
