Thrill Da Playa - Awesome

Man, I love it when artists do my track-reviewing job for me. The latest single from 69 Boyz alumnus Thrill Da Playa is Awesome; case closed! Well… OK, I guess I could write a little more. In contrast to the Jacksonville vet’s first (and, to date, only) Booth feature, the certifiably retro Slide, this joint is cut from a more modern, swaggerrific cloth. Over his and co-producer Mr. Bright‘s upbeat percussion and sizzling synths, the rapper gives himself an extended lyrical pat on the back, celebrating his impeccable swagger, style and mic skill. The track isn’t entirely dedicated to self-aggrandizement, though; listeners get their share of praise as well. On the bridge, Thrill asks us, “Anybody told you you’re awesome lately?” Flattery may get you everywhere socially, but does it work in a musical context? I guess we’ll just have to wait and see! If you think this body-moving track is absolutely… um… terrific, you can look forward to plenty more high-energy jams come August 7, when Thrill Da Player’s User Friendly LP arrives at record stores and online retailers.
