An influential connector in the ATL trap scene, Peewee Longway is an unlimited source of inventive flows. Returning to the fold with a new batch of bangers, Peewee announces State Of The Art, his upcoming album. Peewee uses the sonic backdrop of trap music as a canvas, painting his outsized personality and his unique sense of rhythm above rumbling bass and skittering hi-hats. The proper follow-up to Peewee’s 2016 studio debut Mr. Blue Benjamin, State Of The Art is a testament to Peewee’s microphone prowess, offering bouncy piano jams like “Bout It, Bout It,” minor-key flexors like “James Harden,” drugged-out anthems like “Les Be Real,” and many more. Featuring appearances from Gucci Mane, Migos, Plies, Maxo Kream, Young Nudy, and Lo Life Blacc, and with production from Mustard, 808 Mafia, ATL Jacob, Quay Global, Cicero On The Beat, and more, State Of The Art arrives on November 30th via MPA Bandcamp/EMPIRE. Enjoy this video stream below after the jump and please share this with friends.
To accompany the album announcement, Peewee shares the video for “On Dat Freestyle,” a lurching monster of a track. Produced by Cicero On The Beat, “On Dat Freestyle” finds Peewee rhyming above low-pitched synth squelches, seemingly beamed in from beneath the ocean, as he locks in with the crisp snares and flitting cymbals. Switching up his flow to emphasize the contours of the instrumental, “On Dat Freestyle” highlights Peewee’s oft-overlooked lyrical ability, as he spits rapidfire, alternating between outrageous boasts and subtle self-deprecating humor: “A brick of Harry Potter cost you a fee/Room full of knocks might make you OD/I eat my plate and it make me obese.” In the video, directed by frequent collaborator Omar The Director, Peewee ghost rides like he’s from the Bay, rocking a ski mask and resembling a street Luchador.
An influential figure in the ATL trap scene, Peewee Longway is a longtime associate of Gucci Mane and Young Thug, and is responsible for connecting the two back in 2013. Praised by Stereogum, XXL, HotNewHipHop, and others for his distinctive style and songwriting ability, Peewee earned the attention of LL Cool J, who called Peewee his favorite new artist. Earlier this year, Peewee shared Spaghetti Factory, a full-length collaboration with ATL producer duo Spaghetti Jay. Released in March, Spaghetti Factory inspired several outrageously creative music videos, like “Jumanji,” in which Peewee jet skis in a swimming pool, with only a bevy of beautiful women and a pair of lean-sipping spider monkeys, and the FADER-premiered, Wolf of Wall Street-inspired video for “I Can’t Get Enough.“
