Odd Future’s resident stoner Damier Genesis fulfilled his promise to fans and uploaded his new project Under The Influence to his Tumblr at 4:20 pm yesterday.
This is Domo’s second project, after 2010’s Rolling Paper was released only months before “Yonkers” went viral and the group exploded into mainstream media. Since then, Domo has completed two international tours, which included the European festival circuit and major festivals in the U.S. this summer.
Under The Influence sparked Domo as a treading topic worldwide on twitter, and has reached over 100,000 downloads in less than 12 hours. The mixtape features classic hip-hop cuts including “Boss Life” by Snoop Dogg, “Guess Who’s Back” by Scarface , and a few Kanye West samples, amongst other production done by new producers Rahki, Uzowuru, Tha Bizness,and Hannibal King.
This mixtape competes with any other Hip-Hop album or mixtape offering this year by any underappreciated stoner rapper or mainstream artist. From beginning to end Under the Influence is a well displayed full length album which never seems to fall apart. If a track is breezy, Domo’s flow seems effortless; his casual flow is his best trait, the way he attacks beats with precision look like its no sweat is one of the many ways his overall flow has improved. “Shine”, “Glory” and “Benediciton” are particularly exceptional tracks, each track has flawless production; but still end up being complementary to Domo’s lyrical ability, not the other way around.
Odd Future head honcho Tyler, The Creator makes an appearance on “Whole City Behind Us” in apparently what was his first verse in 7 months. Good news, Tyler has benefitted from his world travel’s as well, dropping a classic verse letting the haters who have anything negative to say about his album know, “Goblin was a disappointment/Yeah right/shit dropped I bought a house that night”. Casey Veggies also lends a nice verse on a the track “Guess Who’s Back” that lets you know the recent high school grad is in the right mind frame.
