21-year-old A$AP affiliate Joey Fatts’ first project was last summer’s slamming Chipper Jones. Vol. 1, and he returned a year later with the hotly anticipated Chipper Jones Vol. 2, featuring a star-studded line-up of guests (Action Bronson, Danny Brown, A$AP Rocky, Alchemist, Freddie Gibbs). His Cutthroat Boyz crew (including Vince Staples, A$ton Matthews, and SK LaFlare) tends to forego fancy metaphors and similes for hard-hitting personal tales about gang life, poverty, and the ills of growing up in Long Beach, California. His smoke-slowed raps evoke respite from that life, and he’s nice behind the boards too. Expect more from the young man soon.
