NEW MIXTAPE: DDG x OG Parker - Die 4 Respect
Rising rap star DDG has joined forces with the gifted producer OG Parker to release DDG’s brand new mixtape ‘Die 4 Respect’. On this project, DDG showcases why it doesn’t matter that he was initially known as a YouTuber. He demands his respect as an artist, and until he fully gets it, he will continue to hit us with quality music.
‘Die 4 Respect’ has many different feels throughout it. DDG gives the listeners trap songs, hip hop tunes, and R&B vibes all wrapped into one. DDG’s growth as an artist is highlighted by his ability to stand toe to toe with all big features on the project. With huge/ talented artists such as NBA Youngboy, Lil Yachty, 42 Dugg, Coi Leray, and PnB Rock, DDG displays how comfortably he can fit into songs with various artists.
His ability to slot into different cadences and switch up the vibe on so many of the great beats provided by OG Parker is very impressive. The beat selection is spot on for the project as there’s not one generic-sounding instrumental on the mixtape. Everything stands out for all the right reasons.
A couple of stand-out tracks on the project are ‘Hood Melody’ where DDG and Youngboy rap about what it’s like coming from the hood. ‘Rule #1’ featuring Yachty is simply outstanding. The exceptional beat is slaughtered by both artists DDG’s flow is mind-blowing. 'Rule #1' is a song that you’ll have on constant repeat after you first hear it. The project finishes up with DDG’s hit single ‘Moonwalking On Calabasas’ featuring Blueface. This was definitely one of the best rap songs of 2020. The bars, the brilliant catchy hook, and the energy both artists bring to ‘Moonwalking On Calabasas’ makes it a simply infectious banger.
