Kirko Bangz Keeps Moving Ahead On Progression III
The hip-hop community is buzzing over the release of Progression III, the third installment in the Progression mixtape series by the young Don of the H-Town, Kirko Bangz. The young rapper/singer enlists vocals from artists such as Paul Wall, Trinidad Jame$, Slim Thug, French Montana, Nipsey Hussle and a few more.
The 14-track release also features production from industry heavyweights Jahlil Beats, K.E., DJ Mustard, and Houston's very own duo Sound Mob; who lent Kirko their talents on his 2011 hit single "Drank in my Cup."
In addition to hosting a listening party for Progression III, Kirko Bangz has also released three visuals for the songs "Keep it Trill" (directed by Benny Boom), "Shirt by Versace" (directed by Mr. Boomtown), and the H-Town anthem-in-waiting "Cup Up Top Down" (directed by Michael Artis).
Kirko's raspy, rhythmic rapping voice and Autotune-enhanced singing skills provides a dual listening experience; two great flavors of the same medicine, metaphorically speaking. The tape's overall tempo is rather slow, but it complements Kirko's rhyme scheme very well.
