From Potch With Love is the latest offering from lyrical maestro Ginger Trill. It comes off the strength of two projects from 2019. So you can tell this cat has been hard at work. The release of the project came as a surprise to fans and the Hip Hop community alike. And it was a surprise well-received.
Ginger Trill has definitely put some skin in the game, no doubt. And this here is a display of that, pound for pound. He gives us his best rapping as he transcends to OG status and a level of confidence to match.
Much like in his previous project, PIF, Ginger Trill continues to be evasive while going on with his dealings. It's at a point where it's all paying off and life is great. It's gangsta rap content through and through. Drug dealer references brought to you through masterful wordplay. The listener's attention is drawn to the raps as he spits laid back beats on most of the tracks.
He gets the technicals right. The raps are top notch. Impeccable delivery. Excellent breath control. The style of music he has settled into fits like a glove. He's in his element. And even though it's a bar fest, he kept the songs short and easy to consume. He doesn't get into deep metaphors so the bars connect as long as you're paying attention. As always, he's on point with the cool talk and finesse.
The relationship Trill has with his homie K- Tasso solidifies further as he is the only feature in the entire project, making appearances on House of BNG and T.M.N.T (Talk To Me Nice). Whether it's luxury raps or aggressive gangsta rap, the duo holds it down. Trilly dips into his luxury bag once more for High End pt 2. Part 1 dropped back in 2018 after he did a European tour with the Dizzy Monks. Part 2 continues over the same beat as he basks in a higher level of opulence.
If you're into new era boom bap you will particularly enjoy the gritty Hoop Dream$ filled with street talk and dreams of balling. And a more motivational It's Yourz, where Trilly dabbles in a Motswako flow on a boombap beat. On a much slower tip but still serving crazy raps, Cool Off Freestyle does the trick. The cool talk sticks out again over a single verse about grinding and swaggin' out.
It's interesting to witness a rapper mature with his craft and still finding ways to improve their skill. Ginger Trill continues to be a rapper's rapper. He practicaly goes hard on each track. You have to hear it yourself to understand. It's surely one that will land well with those that are into the technicalities of rap. Hoping this turns out to be for Ginger Trill the Master Work that alchemist rave about. Fin
