Thrvxxx – Thraxxx “The Movie”
The illustrious Bauce Sauce put me on to this tape, and there’s little information available online about it besides the self-evident fact that it’s insane. Maybe it’s better that way, though, because all that really matters is the music, and if more people pay attention to this overly catchy project, we might learn a little more about Mac Dre, Freakshow, Lizzle, Abu, FP, Big Flock and Bankroll Marky.
It’d be more useful to tell you which songs don’t bang – the three skits. The second song is even some sort of audio ripped from video…and it’s still crack. It’s on the next track, “Big Boy Bandz,” where things really get crucial. “Don’t Worry” is mind-blowing, “Number$” could do just that on the radio, and “Too” is the pièce de résistance of the project, rumored to be a Young Thug song later down the line. The production incorporates Mustard’s minimalist keys and Young Chop’s monstrous drums (he produces “Big Boy Bandz”), making for a pop-friendly sound. The final product is one of the most hidden yet potential-pregnant mixtapes of the year.
