Blueface – “Dirt Bag” review

Blueface is a 22 year old rapper from Los Angeles, California who went viral last fall off of the music video for his single “Respect My Crippin’”. This resulted in a contract with Cash Money Records the following month but with him being fresh off the 2019 XXL Freshman Class a couple months ago, he’s continuing all this buzz with his debut EP.

It starts off with the title track, where Blueface talks about being back on his bullshit over a bassy instrumental. The next song “Bussdown” with Offset sees the 2 talking about going from being broke & being successful over a trap beat with some decent piano chords while the track “Disrespectful” talks about getting just that over a hyphy beat with some keys.

The song “Daddy” with Ruch the Kid talks about their lavish lives over an instrumental that’s somewhat similar to “Thotiana” while the track “Bussin’” with Lil Pump sees the 2 talking about you slipping & them sliding over a trap beat from Scott Storch with some faint keys. The next cut is a remix of “Stop Cappin’” with a killer feature from The Game while the penultimate track “Gang” with Mozzy sees the 2 repping their respective gangs over an atmospheric beat. The EP then finishes with “Bleed It”, where Blueface talks about his experiences in the Crips over an old school hyphy beat.

Walking away from this, it really wasn’t as bad as I would’ve expected. The features were mostly redundant, but Blueface really steps up his flows on here & the instrumentals have a great vibe to them as well.

Score: 3/5
