Homixide Gang – “Snot or Not” review

This is the sophomore full-length album from Atlanta duo Homixide Gang. Consisting of Homixide Beno! & Homixide Meechie, they started turning heads a couple years ago after dropping their debut EP Snotty World & that led to trap trailblazer/rage pioneer Playboi Carti making them the 3rd act to sign to his Interscope Records imprint Opium Records following Ken Carson & Destroy Lonely respectively. But coming off their major label debut Homixide Lifestyle over the fall, Beno! & Meechie are now following it up with Snot or Not.

“ADHD” is a rage-inducing opener making it clear that motherfuckers better have they cash whereas “Homixide Language” takes the trap metal route so both of them can talk about how they can’t walk or hold the strap like them. “5!RE” returns to hypertrap turf stepping into the spot with the guys cautioning not to play with the blicks they’re carrying on the side leading into the futuristically bassy “Wants & Needs” asking their lovers what they need.

Moving on from there with “TNT”, we have the Homixide Gang blending trap with rock once more as they discuss letting them choppers ring with their necks on froze & “C4N” is a remarkable Meechie solo cut with an synth-based instrumental from Malay Raw attached to to it talking about coming from stacking bread every single day & even Comme des Garçons. “Snot Sh!t” declares themselves as real pimps & that their opposition hasn’t seen nothing over more rage beats, but then “Dive In” has more cloudier approach talking about not playing with them.

“Uzi Work” bombastically wants to see how the Draco works & that all of their friends are dead even though this ain’t no Lil Uzi Vert type shit while the song “2 da Face” has more luxurious yet vibrant quality to the instrumental reminding that they really about that slime life. The penultimate track “Block Work” speaks on hitting & selling them bricks over more hypertrap production prior to “Flight’s Booked” sending off the album with them describing life touring overseas.

Now I couldn’t tell you if the grooming allegations that recently came out towards Beno! a couple months ago are true or not, but what I can say is that I think those who liked Homixide Lifestyle as much as myself will enjoy Snot or Not on the same caliber if not higher. They’re continuing to expand their rage sound, Meechie interestingly enough outperforms Beno! on a lot of these cuts & I like how they held it down on their own as opposed to the 50/50 guest list from last time.

Score: 3.5/5
