Unpredictable Watts artist 03 Greedo ceaselessly pushes the limits of what West Coast rap can be. Opening the substantial vault of unreleased material, recorded before he started a 20-year prison sentence in 2018, Greedo shares “She’s Foreign” and “Bring The Block Outside.” Both produced by Digital Nas, “She’s Foreign” and “Bring The Block Outside” illustrate Greedo’s versatile songwriting. A woozy trap ballad with ethereal vocal samples, “She’s Foreign” is a sensual ode to Greedo’s number one, as the Watts native croons: “She loves everything about me/Cause she know I’m bout my business.” Dominated by layers of distorted synths, “Bring The Block Outside” is a demonic party anthem, perfectly suited to kickstart any function. Premiered by Complex, “She Foreign” and “Bring The Block Outside” are the Alamo Records signee’s first official releases since Meet The Drummers, Greedo’s collaborative EP with Travis Barker. Enjoy this audio stream below after the jump and please share this with friends.
Though he’s spent the entirety of 2019 in prison in Amarillo, Texas, 03 Greedo’s had an impressively busy year. Prior to Meet The Drummers, Greedo released Still Summer In The Projects, produced and executive-produced by Mustard. With appearances from YG, Shoreline Mafia, and Trilliano, the album boasted the breezy windows-down jam “Trap House,” which Pitchfork called “a song that should have Greedo’s presence felt this summer.” In April, Greedo shared the Noisey-produced documentary Project Genius: The Story of 03 Greedo, which chronicles his rise and his importance to his Watts community. In addition to his musical output, Greedo made his prison stay a productive one by earning his GED, completing his high school education and celebrating with his wife and father-in-law. With over 3,000 songs recorded and the possibility of parole in 2020, even a prison cell can’t stop 03 Greedo from taking over the game.
