Remember OG Maco? “U Guessed It” one-hit wonder, “Doctor Pepper” bit player, Future critic? He hasn’t actually been around that long, but until today the Atlanta MC seemed more like a passing pop culture blip than a rapper whose best music was still ahead of him. That changes with “Ape Shit,” the Phresh Produce-produced lead single from Maco’s The Lord Of Rage mixtape. It’s a celebratory blast of trap music that splits the difference between the ferocity of Waka Flocka Flame and the sublime melodious mumbles of, well, Future, and it will have you flipping over automobiles in no time. Listen below.
The Lord Of Rage is out 12/31 via Quality Control.
