M.L.A. “Been Trill”
The Mint Lab Astronauts keep comin’ correct with some new single releases after the Return of the Astros EP. “Been Trill” is one of my favorites of the new new, and easily one of the top tier productions from pak.one. The long intro and subsequent base of the beat is reminiscent of D12’s “Purple Pills” — a throwback that almost broke the repeat button on my DiscMan. It was easy to like this one after feeling that vibe, with both pak.one and j.pak dropping some nice lines in their respective verses. Keep an ear out for some slick references from j.pak, which includes some big NBA names that I always appreciate hearing in rap tracks. Icing on the cake? The #TBT cover. A perfect image for the song title “Been Trill”.
