The Flex-Heavy Trio Attack a Lumbering Trap
Colossus in the Latest Single from Pablo's Upcoming
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 Eskimo boss Gucci Mane and 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."
