With G Perico in the driver seat, producer Vanderslice’s “Barry White Shit” serves as both a victory lap and a cautionary tale. The L.A. emcee may be celebrating his wealth and success, but he’s also careful not to slip up or let his guard down. It’s wild to hear so much content packed into a track that barely marches past the one-minute mark, but hey, these two artists are just different.
While G uses his bars to embrace his status with hints of paranoia, Slice backs him up with an instrumental that’s equally haunting and funky. It sounds like something that emerged from a tomb of long-forgotten vinyl with its creeping organs and crunchy drums. And it couldn’t work more perfectly for Perico, who owns the brooding production like only he can.
“Barry White Shit” is available now through all major DSPs, and can be purchased for instant grat off the iTunes pre-order for Trendsetter, which is due out next Friday via Coalmine Records in partnership with Slice’s Stones Faux imprint. The EP can be pre-ordered through Bandcamp, Amazon, Google Play, and more, as well as on vinyl as a general release in classic black. A hot pink variant limited to just 100 units will be sold exclusively through Vanderslice’s Bandcamp page as well as Coalmine Records’ online store, with various bundles available, including slipmats, t-shirts and hoodies.
