We’ve enjoyed music from Tampa rapper Gat$ for some time now; bumped #starshipJERICHO for a minute. His most recent effort – #HEELtv – features production from Henry Daher, Lemieux, Santos, WRATHMATICS & more and finds Gat$ bouncing back and forth between the turn up, arrogance, introspective lows and dizzying highs. Themes of love, life, cops, racism, death, and of course, wrestling pervade the 12-track project. I hadn’t come across the new jams, though, until the other night at the 2 year anniversary for 2nd Saturdays at Fubar. He had a dope performance as expected, but this joint right here stuck with me. At the end of the song I even thought, Damn what’s the name of this song? Luckily 4 seconds later he said, “…and that one is called ‘Sleep Well‘” The beat has it’s own gravitational pull – a given when Santos is involved. Then once you’re drawn all the way in and in a vibed-out daze, here comes a hook that might as well be a boot to the face.

She said, ‘What you need?’ SHIT, I NEED A MILLION DOLLARS!

I saw Gat$ do “VINTAGE!” which was fresh as well, check it out – another enticing hook on that one. Watch out for an album post after I stream #HEELtv in full. Also, make sure to catch the video for “12” when you wrap up here. Til then, burn up and catch the vibe:
