03 Greedo Announces Halfway There Mixtape, His First Newly-Recorded Project Since His Release from Prison
Halfway There Arrives March 24th via Alamo Records
The Watts, CA Native Shares the Video For “Bacc Like I Never Left,” the Tape’s Lead Single
Recorded in the Months Since Greedo’s Release, the Upcoming Halfway There Mixtape Spans More Than 30 Tracks and Proves That the West Coast Legend Hasn’t Lost a Step
“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
Endlessly prolific with an unparalleled work ethic, 03 Greedo spent the weeks following his release on a creative tear. Ready to share the first batch of recordings from his recent binge, 03 Greedo announces Halfway There, his next mixtape. Like many of the projects from his legendary 2010s run, Halfway There benefits from Greedy’s endless font of melodies and peerless ability to write fully-realized songs in a matter of minutes. The new mixtape spans over 30 tracks, featuring contributions from a laundry list of notable names eager to welcome 03 Greedo back to the game. Featuring appearances from Babyface Ray, Maxo Kream, Rich The Kid, and many, many more to be announced, Halfway There arrives on March 24th via Alamo Records.
Last week, the Watts, CA native shared his first single from the tape, “Bacc Like I Never Left,” starting a new chapter in his career. Today, the rapper shares the video for “Bacc Like I Never Left,” its first single. Shot at the legendary Sugar Hill recording studio in Texas, the video finds Greedo enjoying his freedom, with ice on his wrist and neck. Directed by Wyatt Winfrey, the lo-fi video is a perfect complement for the melodic song, which 03 debuted at Billboard’s The Stage @ SXSW.
The release of “Bacc Like I Never Left,” the SXSW performance, and the upcoming Halfway There continue an incredible year for the West Coast icon. Earlier this year, just before his release from jail, Greedo shared Free 03, an acclaimed mixtape. Created in collaboration with renowned L.A. producer Mike Free, the tape features a combination of vault tracks and songs with vocals recorded over the prison phone. Home to 2022 singles “Drop Down” ft. KenTheMan and “Pourin” ft. BlueBucksClan, named one of the Best Rap Songs of 2022 by Passion of the Weiss, Free 03 is a potent refinement of Greedo’s inimitable sound. The tape earned praise from Pitchfork, who wrote “Free 03 blends this celebratory post-prison rush with the emotional fallout from his sentence: a collection of songs that grooves and seethes, always remaining focused on greener pastures,” and earned positive mentions in Billboard, Vulture, HipHopDX, UPROXX, and more.
With Halfway There on the way, 03 Greedo is making up for lost time. Forget a Purple Summer…it’s gonna be Purple all year long.

L.A. rapper 03 Greedo came into his own on a series of mixtapes that began with 2016’s Purple Summer. His multi-faceted rhymes were heavy on references to drugs, struggle, and fame, and he churned out quality material at a prolific rate. He broke through to an even larger audience after signing a record deal, but not even a month after the release of his 2018 debut studio album God Level, he was sentenced to 20 years in prison for drug trafficking. He began serving his time in the summer of that year but issued a statement saying he intended to keep making and releasing new music while incarcerated. In 2019, Greedo released Still Summer in the Projects, the Kenny Beats produced project Netflix & Deal, with features from Freddie Gibbs, Vince Staples, Buddy and more, and in 2020, he dropped Load It Up, Vol. 01, produced by RonRonThe Producer. Greedo released his latest mixtape, Free 03, in January 2023.
