The Queensbridge-to-Los Angeles connection of TNT (rapper Big Twins & producer Twiz The Beat Pro) go straight for the throat with “Straight Face”, the raw lead single off their upcoming collaborative album, ‘TNT‘.
Twiz sets the tone with exactly the type of instrumental that Twins’ voice deserves: a grimy & unhinged backdrop built on heavy drums and a looping sample. It’s perfect for the Infamous Mobb member, who takes Internet rappers to task for their hollow rhymes while recognizing his own efforts (“I love a happy ending I can see it now / Record sold out, I control the crowd”).
He then passes the mic to his guest, Killer Ben (of Durag Dynasty), whose verse is as snarling as his host’s. Ben blends ridiculous wordplay with a hilarious explanation of how his lyrics remain so on point (fuck a life coach, right?) before the quick-hitting track fades out—and you’re left hitting the replay button.
