When I see the words “Sweet Valley” I immediately think of Elizabeth and Jessica Wakefield, the twin blond bombshells who ruled the Sweet Valley High pre-teen book series. Oddly enough, the hazy, atmospheric production style that this Sweet Valley creates is not too far off from a teen-dream bedroom vibe after all — that is, until Juicy J and Soulja Boy show up. Sweet Valley is Nathan Williams of Wavves and his brother Joel Williams, and while this beat is a booming, beautiful piece of cloudy tinsel-pop, it’s Juicy who steals the show. “With all this bread I need a bigger stomach,” he raps, delivering the best bread/hunger/money pun trifecta we’ve ever been served. Listen to the airy track below.
