Ain’t No Fun
Everyday (feat. Curren$y)
At his career outset, Girl Talk established a reputation for crafting mash-ups and soundtracking raves. But in 2014, he dove deep into production with Broken Ankles, a joint EP with Philly rapper Freeway. Over the next few years, he produced for Wiz Khalifa, Big K.R.I.T., and Smoke DZA individually, before connecting with all three for a multi-day recording session that yielded Full Court Press. The collaboration renders the quintessential tendencies of the three blog-era stars with no compromise. Girl Talk’s otherworldly soul perfectly complements Big K.R.I.T.’s drawl and South-steeped lyricism ("Fly The Coop"), and the groove-heavy "Ready For Love" allows Wiz to showcase the lazily infectious melodies that helped make him a star. Meanwhile, on "Revenge Of The Cool," Smoke DZA's sly one-liners sink into subdued country funk as he trades bars with K.R.I.T. And on the triumphant “Put You On,” they weave around each other for a propulsive track that nails the intersection of their gifts.
