With a title like "Thugs N Hoes," rapper and producer Vell leaves little to the imagination, as it doesn't take much time for us to discover his love for his crew, his women, and his hometown of Oakland. But unlike the dozens of studio gangsters in the game right now, Vell is actually about that life; this reflects in his work and his love for the rich culture that the Bay Area has developed . Simply put, this track slaps. That signature DJ Mustard sound pounds through this track as Vell speaks on his surreal life that leaves us wanting more.
Stay Down To Come Up, Vell's debut mixtape, will drop really quick, so stay tuned to hear more from that project. If you haven't heard the first track from the mixtape, then you can peep "Oakland" down below. With Mustard and DJ Amen giving the co-sign as hosts to the tape, you know you'll be hearing this one from every boomin system riding down the block this summer.
