Please avoid sleeping on the new Johnny Cinco tape, John Popi 2. It contains 19 new tracks, and most all of them are innovative examples of Atlanta trap. One of the obvious standouts is the smooth, introspective Pourin’ Up, which features a close collaborator of Cinco’s in YFN Lucci. A lot of big projects dropped this weekend a new Logic album as well as a surprise EP from Jeremih and three new Meekend Music tracks from Meek Mill.
The soft Trap-N-B collab is one of the catchier tracks on the tape, but it’s also one of the deepest. Both trappers are so bold with their vocals. Cinco is more experimental with his flows and lyrics, while Lucci delivers the chills with how determined he sounds when he comes in a little over halfway into the track. Lucci also shows up on the John Popi 2 track “I Know.” Other features on the project come from Trouble and YFN Trae Pound.
