EDITORS’ NOTES

A Mexican rapper out of Inglewood, Calif., Lil G appeared in the early '00s and later released The Underground Chapter 1, followed by Hood Money and the Blue Devil mixtapes. With an assist from Big Downer, he returns for Part 2, continuing his standard-issue slow-flow West Coast gangsta-rap approach. The production is solid and funky enough, with big drums, watery keyboards, and thick bass lines while Lil G sounds off about the usual subject matter: violence ("Gunz in My Neighborhood"), hometown pride ("Love LA"), and the mystical power of females. Definitely nothing that hasn't been done a million times before, but if you just can't get enough Cali G tales, it's worth a listen. Most intriguing is the diss track "Letter to Dr. Dre," where he basically calls out the man most responsible for making gangsta rapper a potential career choice in the first place.
