Holy Sh*t You Need to Hear Chief Keef's Trap Symphony

Finally, exactly what the culture needed.
Holy Shit You Need to Hear Chief Keef's Drill Symphony

You didn’t know you needed this, did you? Thankfully, Audiomack knew the whole of hip-hop needed a Chief Keef three-song suite backed by a nine-piece orchestra. 

Following up their successful Trap Symphony series, which started with Migos in 2015 and continued with A Boogie wit da Hoodie earlier this year, the streaming platform now delivers the series' first-ever drill edition.

Chief Keef’s “Love Sosa,” “Faneto,” and “Belieber” are given a new and richer life with the live percussion and rich tone of violins, viola, piano, and cello. The natural menace and thump of Keef’s music is amplified to an otherworldly degree. Where Auto-Tune once drove Keef’s melodies and rattling hi-hats added a necessary tension, the pizzicato, and sweeping strings section take over and elevate his music to new heights of classicism. Knowing that drill is dependent on the body and accelerated heartbeat of a track, the arrangements here get to the heart of why drill is an enduring subgenre.

Don Toliver, Tame Impala & 5an: Best of the Week

Don Toliver, Tame Impala, 5an, and more, all had the best new songs on Audiomack this week.

“We came up with the idea for the Trap Symphony concept while we were in an elevated state,” says Audiomack co-founder David Ponte. “After the success of the Migos Trap Symphony we wanted to continue the series to further prove the talent that rappers have by demonstrating that they can go toe-to-toe with classically trained musicians. The goal was to create something beautiful and unique and I think we’ve accomplished that yet again.”

If these bitches loved Sosa before, they’ll absolutely love him now that he’s got shooters in the form of classically trained orchestra players.
