It’s been a good week for mixtapes, thanks to the arrival of Big K.R.I.T.’s Return of 4Eva and Preemo’s Magic Bullet. Those two do a great job of capturing the soulful side of the Dirty South. But if you’re looking for southern bounce, consider Big Sid’s Music Money, & Motivation a party starter.
The Michael “5000” Watts-sanctioned mixtape is drenched in smooth and vibrant southern hop. That’s no surprise to those familiar with Sid’s work. Born in Lake Charles, LA, Sid got his start in the rap game by throwing parties in West Texas. While his parties featured high-profile artists like Chamillionaire and Game, his latest release is light on guests. The few co-conspirators on Music, Money, & Motivation (Killer Mike, Slim Thug, J-Dawg) all turn in solid verses. But Big Sid stays in control throughout.
With money on his mind and music as his motivation, Big Sid is ready to get this party started.
