Free Download: Ugly God - 'The Booty Tape'
Thu, 10 Aug 2017 12:03:09
Royce Rodriguez, aka Ugly God, hails from Houston and just dropped his first project. He initially came to recognition via Soundcloud with his mumble-forward style and ridiculous track titles, like "I Beat My Meat", garnishing attention. However, he refused to be pigeonholed by those generalization, and broke through last year with "Water". The track showed he has an ear for melody and an agile flow.
Last Friday, Ugly God debuted his first really tangible product, The Booty Tape, and better yet he made it free to download. It's a bold move from a rapper who has never released an album, but following in the footsteps of Chancellor Johnathan Bennett doesn't seem like a bad idea.
The Booty Tape features a collaboration with Wiz Khalifa and production from Ugly God himself. It was rumored that Lil Yachty, XXXTentacion and Ski Mask the Slump God would also make appearances on the mixtape, but they didn't end up making the final cut — another bold move from the rapper.
On his first real project, Ugly God delivers a lot of what you might expect. There are egregious track names such as "LDC (Little Dick Clique)" and plenty of posturing, but what else would you expect from a project called The Booty Tape? Nonetheless, the rapper delivers on his outsized, video game-esque persona.
As the first piece of full material from Ugly God, The Booty Mixtape sums up what most have expected from him, but still manages to showcase his impressive flow and mind for melody. This is not the mixtape for those looking to find something that is political or full of philosophical ponderings on life. However, those looking to turn up the volume on something new after a night at the club that they don't want to end, will be rewarded with this mix.
