Vulcha Smooth - “Trouble Follow Me” (2011)
Just some straightforward emotion spilling from Vulcha Smooth on a beat with a sample from every soul sampler’s favorite Dramatics.
Tony Montana might be a fictional character from Miami but he actually lives somewhere in the minds of a few rappers from the area. That’s the only way I can reason the urge to try to do a take on Future’s “Tony Montana”.
Vulcha Smooth - “Tony Montana (Freestyle)”
It should be a written guideline not to bite the original too hard if you’re going to rap over the beat for an already popular song. I appreciate Vulcha Smooth for at least trying to be original and keeping me entertained with “eeyah’s” sprinkled about.
EEYAH is becoming my favorite ad lib to shout out in real life (surpassing “woop-woop”) despite it sounding like a cowboy’s “yee-haw”.
Ice Berg - “Tony Montana (Freestyle)”
Ballgreezy - ”Tony Montana Freestyle”
For some reason Ballgreezy decided to abandon his smooth flow for the best Future imitation he could do. It got him 12000 hits on World Star, so, success?
Vulcha Smooth - “Trelly Ski”
Minus the annoying advertising all over the video, Vulcha Smooth’s reminiscent tribute to the locked up Trelly Ski (of M.G.T.) is truly heartfelt. There are similar North Miami settings in this video as in the video for their collab “Life of a Vulcha” and the vocals are as coarse as Trelly’s “Under the Sun”. It’s one thing to write a song about your homie, it’s another to express it by transforming into him. From looking at his other videos, Vulcha Smooth normally rolls deep, but I’d believe without his partner he’s as lonely as in this video.
Outside of all that emotional crap, the dubbed punchlines in “Trelly Ski” emphasize the pain. Any listener with a heart probably gets it replaced with Vulcha’s. Also, someone make an award for “Best Diction for Underground Artists” and give it to Vulcha Smooth, please.
