Here’s the tape we’ve been waiting for from Billy & Nate; a couple weeks in the studio is all it took to get us this versatile 13-track gem. When we heard Summer Breeze and Peace at 1AM it was obvious that whatever reform they did ameliorated their music to a new level. Although their names still aren’t huge in the rap industry, this is exactly what they needed to gain some notoriety after their year long hiatus. The production bounces around a lot, from jazzy style instrumentals that we’re used to hearing from them to the not so familiar dark/ambient beats, but for the most part they keep things down tempo. The lyricism is relatable and meaningful, the hooks are catchy and quotable, and the delivery is better than ever. If I had to spotlight a few I’d suggest the Intro, Summer Breeze, The Reason, and Glory Daze. Cop this tape while it’s hot, and don’t sleep on Billy G or Rotte, JAM sesh is on their come up.

Peace at 1AM – Rotte & Billy G

Download Peace at 1AM - Rotte & Billy G

After not hearing from them in over a year, Billy G gained some hype off his and Rotte’s first single Summer Breeze, and promised me a mixtape by the end of the month. I wasn’t sure what to expect from this Boston duo; they’d clearly done some improvements on their style, production, and lyricism since we’d last heard from them, but a whole mixtape in two weeks? Well once again, I’m blown away. Rotte adds a whole new dimension to their music, delivering perfectly crafted verses over an ambient piano based instrumental. Billy G’s transient hook explains the whole vibe of the track, getting fucked up to forget about girls. Stay tuned for their recently renamed mixtape Hot Dog Stand Across The Street dropping on the 30th, and be sure to follow Billy & Rotte on twitter.
