Don Trip Terminator 2 (2011, Mixtape)

Sticking (again) with the Memphis rap theme, one of the most currently buzzed about southern artists in blog rap drops the second installment in his Terminator series. 

Trip’s video for the ~year old “Letter To My Son” made the rounds on Father’s Day, while the Dope Boyz-produced “Vent” (different track from K.R.I.T.’s “The Vent”), garnered the Cool and Dre-backed Memphisian further exposure.

If you aren’t up on Don Trip, yet (and really, unless you spend most of your waking moments tied to a computer screen surfing rap blog RSS feeds, you probably aren’t), the guys over at Dirty Glove Bastard compiled an Unofficial Best Of Don Trip mixtape over the weekend, so that’s a good place to start.

Even better, though, Terminator 2 is a NO DJ, featureless effort from Trip, with production from Toomp, Drumma Boy, Lex Luger and his benefactors, Cool and Dre, so there’s no filler to distract from the gritty emotional and physical struggles of his life set to music.
