When a project is so solid and incredible as So Much For Good Luck by Deante’ Hitchcock all you can do is buckle up and enjoy the ride. Hitchcock is literally snapping on this project and showcasing his skill set in so many ways it gives me goosebumps. Listening to this project it takes me back to the early days of Hitchcock sharing his music with the world via social media and me thinking man this guy has everything necessary to be a bonafide rap star. All of that front seat freestyling, campus rap battling, and dedication to the studio is finally adding up, and I love it.
“Mama told me don’t bring no hoe to where your home at and fuck Twitter man I can probably make my own app.”
— Deante’ Hitchcock
If you have a passion for extraordinary lyricist that love to spit bar after bar on hella dope tracks, this project is for you. Hitchcock goes out of his way to make sure you think about his lyrics, slaps you in the face with a bar that you never saw coming, and flows so smooth even your shawty will enjoy listening to it. Although this EP is only six tracks I guarantee you will find yourself playing them over and over and over until you’re just like what the fuck!, when will the full-length project drop. Thankfully, I already know Hitchcock’s camp is working on just that. Making sure that his debut album is nothing but California hills fire! Also, the one feature from the big homie GoldLink seems to be pretty dope as he lays it all out in the open on Wide Open which features a dope sample from Bad Habits by Maxwell.
The production on this project is nothing short of incredible as it’s obvious that Brandon Phillips Taylor was pulled in to handle most of the production to make sure the drums and hi-hats slap. Beyond that when anyone decides to go out of their way to sample, Never Should’ve Let You Go by Hi-Five, and create a track like Thinking ‘Bout You, they on to something. The production quality on this project went way past any expectation ever set.
Overall, this project was perfectly put together as you get a hot track with No Secret to start the EP and a more introspective track in Ascension from Hitchcock to bring it all together. All of this is to say, I hope he puts this one on vinyl. Hitchcock keep on grinding man and know that the world will soon feel and hear your story.
