Footprints on the Moon

Counting Killa Kyleon and Slim Thug, only eight MCs assist Doughbeezy on the 16 tracks of February mixtape Footprints on the Moon, the cauldron-hot southeast Houston rapper's first since 2012's Blue Magic. Considering the output of his contemporaries, that's nothing. That Doughbeezy's lightning-quick, nasal delivery is still welcome by track 15, "Bang Bang," a violent gunshot beat emptied over Nancy Sinatra remodeling, reinforces his appeal. "Lift[ing] Off" kills with bravado so twisted you'd need a shrink to break it down ("My flow so hard I got niggas tryna sign me, but first niggas gotta find me."). Doughbeezy "rolls a blunt as big as [his] thumb," exhaling rally cries ("I'm From Texas"), and heavy Houston artillery ("Tippin"). "I ain't rapping too fast. You just listening too slow." We're certainly listening. (11pm, Quantum Lounge)
