Rhyming with an eerie calm, Hoodrich Pablo Juan doesn’t have to raise his voice to make his presence felt. Joining forces with two of hip-hop’s flashiest flexors, Hoodrich Pablo Juan shares “Shoebox,” his new single. Riding a lumbering and colossal trap beat, complete with twinkling piano, pitched-down vocal chants, and monster movie bells, Pablo trades bars with his 1017 Eskimoboss Gucci Maneand with XO standout NAV.
Forming a formidable tag team, the three rappers take turns describing their extravagant lives, each trying to one-up each other’s boasts: “Park perpendicular, hopped out the venture doors/Screamed fuck a hater to no one in particular,” rhymes Gucci; “I was trappin’ out a Honda Accord,” says NAV; “I be fresh to death like I’m deceased,” boasts Pablo.
Premiered by Highsnobiety, “Shoebox” is the latest single from BLO, Pablo’s upcoming project, following the Complex-premiered, “Screaming Slatt,” featuring Young Thug, the sinister “Fireworks” (2 million YouTube views) and “Dolce Gabbana,” his collaboration with 1017 Eskimo labelmates Yung Mal & Lil Quill. BLO arrives this Spring via 1017 Eskimo/Alamo.
“I’ve been laying low for a minute now, but it’s time to remind people who might have forgotten about my impact,” says Pablo about his upcoming project. “I had to go in and remind everyone what I bring to the game can’t be replicated. That’s why I called the project BLO. There are a lot of great features, like Nav, Guwop, and Thugger, but the focus is still on me.”
