Clandestine activities are usually better to omit from recording booths but for some artists, the more details the better. When Red Cafe caught up with Lil Durk and Hypno Carlito in the studio, the trio decided it’d be a great concept for a record to talk “Illegal” s**t for four minutes. Thankfully, more than the beat is fuego.
Discussing their ability to plug in weight, girls and other black market activities, the cut must have the hip-hop cops smiling ear to ear. This joint comes from Carlito’s new project Never Say Never which hosts 14 glorious dopeboy anthems and includes a dope French Montana verse which can be streamed here.
“It’s illegal to sip that drank, it’s illegal to wear fake chains
It’s illegal to dress like that, it’s illegal to steal my fame
It’s illegal to buy designer, it’s illegal to wife these hoes
It’s illegal to catch this case, it’s illegal to do these shows”
Cafe, who must have been fed up with being @’d by coffee drinkers around the world for the duration of his career, has opted to embrace the illegal world with both arms and change his name to The Dope God. It sounds weird to hear him crooning in Auto-Tune but he has always known how to work with what he’s got and the melodies work for him.
Hopefully more music is on the way from The Dope God or whatever name he sticks with because Red has always been a lowkey favorite around these parts.
