Procrastination kills 4
Release Date 9/4/2012

The young Texas playa is back to bless us with the 4th installment of his Procrastination Kills mixtape series Procrastination kills 4. Kirko Bangz has parlayed his 2012 XXL freshman nomination into established fame and making even bigger noise with his radio hits “What Yo Name Iz” and “Drank In My Cup”, but PK4 marks a turn for him. He has perfected that slow melodic h-town rapping style that Drake has made so popular, Texas presence is felt throughout the entire project; from the slow beats to the screw effect, Kirko Bangz uses all of them heavily, but doesn’t overdo it. Over a course of 13 tracks, Bangz showcases his ability to craft catchy flows and it is refreshing to see an artist really rep from Houston and take that style and make it fresher.

“Hold it Down” features Young Jeezy, it’s that boisterous streetwise banger and by far one of the standout songs, due to how effortlessly it incorporates the feel of PK4 with the punches on verses like “And niggas say I’m singing/well singing got me bitches/and you just got me bitches/these niggas in my city, all up in my business/start asking bout a nigga, yes them bitches…”

“Nasty Nigga” is that traditional Southern rap anthem, about how nasty they can get with a breezy. With Tyga also on this cut, the song is going to be comical in a good way. “And now she turn that ass around for that 69/How many licks did you take, I’m on 89/That pussy taste like water, my favorite kind/I lick the tats on her back, yeah, every night…”

Objectively darker and personal with odes to his fallen aunt on “Used To Be” and the guitar driven “Help Me Out”, PK4 wants to solidify Kirko as an artist, not just a hitmaker who has tracks for the ladies. But what is a good Texas player’s mixtape without a track for the strippers? “That Pole” has Chris Brown on the hook and a slow guitar in the background. Together that’s a concoction for disaster especially if you are on the dance floor. They make magic and don’t be surprised if “That Pole” with Breezy turns into another radio smash for Kirko. Grab the tape here.
