Trae tha Truth has dropped a new mixtape full of freestyles titled Another 48 Hours and it’s in honor of DJ Screw.
DJ Screw released “June 27th,” twenty years ago today. It was considered one of the greatest Houston hip-hop tracks of all time.
Amazingly, the track is over 35 minutes in runtime, comprised of the back and forth freestyles of several members of the Screwed Up Click as well the continuous chopping and screwing of the master himself, who’s influence is still deeply embedded in the Houston sound, over 15 years after his death. A handful of members of the Screw’s storied collective are still going strong today, including Trae tha Truth, who dropped off his Tha Truth, Pt. 2 album, with features from T.I., Rick Ross, and Young Thug, earlier this year. hotnewhiphop.com
In honor of DJ Screw, Trae’s new mixtape consists of freestyles delivered in a nonstop cook-up sesh in the classic Screw tradition.
According to Hot New HipHop, the tape is titled Another 48 Hours to represent the amount of time it took Trae to record all 11 freestyles.
