Homicide Boyz Got A Wave Comin
Goonew and Lil Dude were brought to my attention by Ian Connor and Lil Yachty. Ian posted them in a crib banging their collab with Yachty “Homicide Boat”. Upon first listen I was not to sure if I liked them. Goonew has a very similar flow to Q Da Fool and other DMV rappers and Lil Dude can be very generic as well, but I kept revisiting because I felt I was missing something. Now after taking a hard few listens to Goonew’s GoonWick project I can say that despite whatever negatives people have to say about them (sometimes off beat flow being the main gripe) , their trajectory is looking up. One of the best parts about their music to me is their beat selection which ranges from complex samples to hyper minimal keyboard beats all of them knocking something serious. Standouts for me are “Homicide Boat” ft Lil Yachty, “Stain” ft Duwap Kaine, “Str8 Of Da Boat”, “80’s”, and “Goon Rich” from Goonew. “2.0”, “No Hiding“, and “Lil Boowop” from Lil Dude.
