With artists releasing songs at a fast and furious pace, it’s difficult for the average hip-hop head to keep track of it all—no matter how tapped in they are. That’s why we created The Ones, a daily post to highlight the song you need to hear.
DB.Boutabag - “Celebration”
On “Celebration,” Sacramento’s DB.Boutabag has so much disrespectful shit to get off of his chest that he’s still rapping when the beat begins to fade. Like many of Cali’s finest street storytellers, Boutabag has a bounce even when he’s busy demoralizing others. “Soon as niggas get to losing and then they start praying/Nigga keep it real with yourself, you will not make it,” he raps, hardly taking a breath. Being spiteful has never sounded like so much fun.
