Playaz Circle - Hold Up
Though their sophomore album, Flight 360: The Takeoff, has been delayed for a while (likely due to a figurative “fuel inspection”), Playaz Circle are still determined to get it off the ground. Hoping to give their sophomore album an extra boost, the Duffle Bag Boyz have released an official second single. Since Stupid wasn’t as crowd-pleasing as they had hoped, Tity Boi and Dolla Boy take a more outside-the-box approach here, trading simple (yet very quotable) four-bar verses and inviting the listener to Hold Up for the next stanza. The Kids Wit Machine Gunz back them up with a 30,000-foot high-sounding synth-sample-percussion beat (A Milli 2.0, anyone?). There’s no doubt that Hold Up will bring The Takeoff a much-needed boost, but will it be enough to get the LP cleared for landing? We’ll have to wait and see.
