Kevin Parx: No bricks!
With his form readied, Santa Ana rapper Kevin Parx dropped his latest mixtape Freethrows earlier this week. The collection of 15 tracks definitely elevates his craft to another level. Parx warms up with a signature 'Haa' grunt before killing verses throughout. On the mixtape, the choruses comes with rhymes that stay stuck on listeners' minds. The title track "Freethrows" declares "Now the streets know/ Fuck that other shit/ This is freethrows" before breaking out into a repeated chant of 'free-throws!' On "Explosive" he rolls out a catchy lyrical interpolation from the similarly titled song off of Dr. Dre's 2001 album.
The mixtape bumps through the beats of Get Money Boy$ (GMB) production with Wizzo and KY handling most of the tracks. Back when the Weekly checked in with Parx before the release of Freethrows he hinted that there was a conceptual element surrounding relationships. As it turns out, it's damn clever and paced throughout the album in the form of skits with characters June, Karma and Trinity.More »
