Trap music has evolved whether you believe it or not. I remember in 2005 when Jeezy dropped “Thug Motivation 101: Let’s Get It”, and the sounds was pretty much organs, brass, and 808. Fast forward 12 years later (yes, the sub-genre has been around THAT long), the sound has gotten better. Producers and artist are willing to keep the framework, and make alterations to everything else. A good example of this is JerZ on his new single “Go Figure”. Over layers of pads, and vocal sound bites provided by Groove, Jerz rolls up his sleeves and gets right to work. “I’m stuck off of glue, that’s that gorilla. Smoking a j, playing old Dilla. Trained to go, like you already know nigga. But, standoffish like “yo, I don’t know niggas.” The bars keep coming in this dope record as he says “Y’all tripping. Y’all don’t see the contradictions. Want a pot of gold, but no pot to piss in. Say you’re the best, but you’re no competition. Your ears are decorations, y’all sure don’t listen.” At the end of the day, it’s a good song from an artist that people should start to keep their ears and eyes open for.
