Revenue Retrievin': Overtime Shift
Label: Heavy On The Grind Ent.
The Bay Area's loopiest, most prolific MC is far from subtle: Part of his Revenue Retrievin' series (joining Graveyard Shift alongside 2009's Day Shift and Night Shift, all hour-plus monstrosities), Overtime boasts tracks called "Gunz," "Drugs," "F*ck 'Em" and (yes!) "I Love My Momma." His pinched, nasal voice and rubbery flow abide; "Beastin'" is perhaps the most exemplary of the album's bass-heavy, bargain-bin-space-age beats. Around here "I probably sold your family member drugs" makes for a fine chorus; "Tired of Selling Yola" is convincing, but the other 19 songs suggest otherwise.
