Two years ago, in 2017, most people from outside of Las Vegas could only name one rapper from the city, and that was Dizzy Wright. Hell, for the most part, most people in the city could only name him. That year, though, something changed and Big Homie Stone emerged as the city’s hero with his brilliant debut, PRMSLND. After a bit of a hiatus — one that included the brief release of Don’t Know Don’t Kare — the Vegas native is back and ready to continue his dominance as he releases his new single, “3K (Freestyle)”.
Produced by AK, I must first note that of the few collaborations these two have, this is the best that AK has produced. Creating a paranoia-filled vibe that makes you feel like you’re in the midst of trying to save the world on acid, he brilliantly sets up Stone to black out… and that he does.
In the most aggressively charged cadence we’ve heard from Stone to date, he gives us an idea of why he took his hiatus, emotionally rapping about topics like a new baby girl, leechy friends, bullshit label offers and a whole lot more. In short, Stone took this opportunity to bare all and rap for his life, a touch of transparency that we needed from the Vegas rapper after his last D-Boy inspired mixtape.
Press play on the record below and get ready for the storm.
