As often as Odd Future has been determined to be left of what’s considered traditional hip-hop, they’ve always been closer to the center of things. Their debut doesn’t seem that long ago but that’s when the world focused on the likes of Left Brain, MellowHype, Hodgy Beats and more not from an artistic side but rather the rowdy slice of nihilism that Tyler, the Creator led with.
Hodgy is back with a brand new mixtape, Dena Tape 2 that gets host Don Cannon to add his signature tag along a wide-ranging palate of synth heavy bangers from the likes of Hit-Boy, Domo Genesis, Left Brain, Marvel Alexander and Sap. “You just another wannabe that wanna be shit,” Hodgy boasts on “Self-Titled,” another moment that puts the mindset of Hodgy right in line with plenty of his contemporaries, unstoppable and full of gusto.
