SRA REVIEW: DERTY DEN x L I M I T L E S S TEASER VIDEO
Last project from Derty Den was, hands down, a classic. "Tony Soprano" averaged 4.5 stars on every mixtape review. It featured collaborations from Bobby Valentino, Jay Z and even J. Cole and became a favorite to ride to, cook out to and included the start of a wave of remixes featuring top artists within NC. Released just a week prior to his big win at the 2010 SMES for Best male Hip Hop, it also contained the hit singles "I See Paper" and "All I Need".
Before Tony Soprano, there was the infamous "Carolina Aint Enough" mixtape hosted by DJ Ike Gda. "Hey Shawty", "Poppin", "Fly Shyt", just to name a few, all came off of this installment and couldn't have released at a better time at a point in his career. Heat Wave was one of his installments that people often fail to realize its importance. It was a Don Cannonz co-sign and hosted project and was released around the time he won the Underground Music Award for Male Hip Hop of the Year.
So why no deal? I think its the way he thinks, the way his team moves and the way he see's his career... his next project will explain it all.
"Limitless" street album, set to drop June 10, 2011:
