Compton-based rapper Buddy is back with some beats and rhymes on the 5-track EP entitled Ocean & Montana, a collaboration with Canadian producer Kaytranada.
Buddy originally signed to Pharrell Williams’ I Am Other label where he released the Idle Time album in 2014 along with his single ‘Awesome Awesome.’ But the label relationship fizzled out.
The partnership with Kaytranada is a better fit nonetheless. ‘Guillotine’ pairs Buddy’s smooth flow over some funky West Coast electronic vibes. This is certainly no come-back record; rather, Buddy is just getting started. And Kaytranada’s beats continue to get more interesting.
