The Greselda family tree has been growing heavily throughout the year and through the affiliation with Benny the Butcher, We are now introduced to Rae Rose and Ya Boy Twan. Both of these guys follow the same formula, style, and lingo as the Greselda artists and thats what makes Charles pack a punch. The concept of Charles is he’s the husband of Drug Queen-pen Greselda Blanco so this mixtape/LP plays off that theme of the drug game.
The songs featuring Benny the Butcher and Conway respectively Knives &Roses and Killers Killer are automatically bangers. All 3 of the emcees bring a different element to the table which makes this mixtape nice. Rae Rose’s Mr Piano(produced by DJ Shay) is reminiscence of that classic 90s east coast sound
YNX716 is one of the nicest coming out as well. The collab with Ya Boy Twan and Rae Rose brings out that old classic Diplomats sound on Money & Blessings. He also collabed with 38 Spesh(whom is criminally underrated) on one of my personal favorites titled Love Lost and came through with that wild NY goon energy on NYS of Mind.
Overall Charles is a great appetizer for what to come from this trio. The Greselda family is branching out heavily and with the Roc Nation deal. Look for them to only be more stronger in the years to come.
