In recent years, movie soundtracks have started to become increasingly popular in the rap world as chances for us all to hear new music and superstar collaborations between some of our favorite artists. Today, blessing the world with a new song from none other than Cousin Stizz, the power of the soundtrack is felt with the triumphant cut, “Records”. Acting as part of the highly-anticipated movie Uncle Drew (starring Boston’s own Kyrie Irving), this track isn’t just a perfect audio companion for any glo-ups going on this summer, but it’s also a huge moment for CT native Twayne The Kidd.
Twayne has become known locally as an incredibly hard-working individual, constantly working in a way that has garnered great respect from artists and fans around the Boston area and beyond. To see him appear on the production credits for a Stizz track is a huge moment in putting local talent on the map, and needless to say, “Records” definitely shows us just how capable he is of crafting an absolute banger whenever needed. The rapidly-moving, confident stature of the instrumental strengthens the memorable lines of, “Imma break the record like Guinness/ Paper keep spinning/ This is big boy business, watch out”, and all in all, this song will stay on repeat for the rest of the summer in my playlist.
Give “Records” a listen at the link below and be sure to watch Uncle Drew when it premieres in theaters!
