Fiend - Corner Store
Round Fiend‘s way, the New Orleans rhymesayer is as reliable an institution as the local Corner Store; from early in the morning till late at night, you can find him and his clique standing “right next to the sweet shop,” ready to supply whatever it is you’ve been craving. And his prices? As the artist puts it on his latest EP single (his first feature since September’s Drop Top Chevy), “only the feds could go cheaper.” MonstaBeatz handles production on this street-ready cut, layering Southern-fried organ loops over a leisurely rhythm section. Like what you’re hearing? You can find Corner Store and much more on Fiend’s Wrapping Papers EP, released to iTunes on January 2.
