TRACK: Star Slinger f Lil B, Stunnaman, “Bad Bitches” [via Fader]Â
Is it too much to hope that this is the beginning of a long, fruitful rap producing career for Star Slinger? Apparently Lil B approached him for this track, which goes hard on popcorn drums and hard kicks over a more characteristically heavenly choral sample, while B and Stunna do their thing. Not to be missed.
