Starlito – Fried Turkey
Starlito has had a busy year. After dropping the quick Attention, Tithes and Taxes in June, he released his first official retail album (that you can find on Best Buy and Amazon) with Cold Turkey, then dropped the highly anticipated Step Brothers 2 with Don Trip and finished off the year with one of his best solo albums yet, Fried Turkey.
Lito makes any beat on Fried Turkey his own – he crushes Red Dot on the Lil’ Kess-produced trap anthem “Don’t Forget The Bag”, he drops knowledge on the droopy album opener “Again” (produced by the godly Ryan Hemsworth), and the magnificent DJ Burn One cooks up rainy day Parisian production for “Keep the Change”. More DJ Burn One beats, please.
Lito’s known for not holding anything back in his rhymes, wheeling from depression to abortion to deceit and drug abuse without batting an eyelash. His delivery never wears on you; it’s the wit contained in his punchlines that make them so engaging, and even while he deals with some heavy topics, he always wins out, and he’s gone on record to say how grateful he is just to be alive. That Zen-like appreciation for still being on earth is what imbues Fried Turkey with a glow-in-the-dark allure and makes it one of his finest tailored projects to date. If you aren’t up on the one-time Cash Money prodigy, now’s your chance. Can we get a Starlito x Kevin Gates album next though?
