Coming off of the release of Jellyfish back in 2016 and a couple singles to start the year off, producer Lord Gio has returned with his latest project Heatwave Vol. 1.
The Jackson product blends the loft sound that has popularized Soundcloud and other music streaming platforms with his own unique flair to develop the eight tracks showcased on the tape’s first volume. While Gio does not offer up any verses from himself, he enlists the help of King $ly, Nick G, Hux, and Aero Sandhill on three of the songs. While Hux and Aero glide over Gio’s smoother production, Nick and $ly take on the rougher edge of his style, with $ly delivering gritty bars about how his “niggas doing dirt until they turn into dust”.
With a project out of the way relatively early into 2017, and the fact this is labeled as Volume 1, expect another installment of Lord Gio’s Heatwave series in due time. Until then, peep the project below.
