The holidays are over and it’s time to get back to work and school and all those pesky obligations we’ve been putting off. The silver lining is that rappers, too, are getting back to work, which means more music for us. Take Hodgie Street, for instance; in just a few weeks (on the 21st, to be exact), he will release the American Dreamin LP. With his latest single, N*gga Sh*t, Hodgie shows that he has been hard at work during the holidays. Matching the vintage vibe of Snow and Supanatra‘s soul beat, Hodgie uses his rapsy, sure-footed flow to paint a few vivid pictures of his upbringing in Ohio. Fellow Midwest native P.A. Flex assists on the guest tip, exhibiting a higher-pitched, more agile delivery. While you wait for the EP, why not check out Hodgie’s DJBooth debut, October 2013’s Make It?
