Young Thack - Addicted To Excitement / B Hyphen - Bebop & Rocksteady


Once upon a time, I set out to do a mixtape with Thack. We started a few things, released a few collaborations, but nothing concrete was ever completed due to our contrasting schedules. In November, Thack decided he was moving to pursue new music opportunities. I'm still in Morgantown of course, but before he left, he gave me the two tracks we did when we first tried to make a project together.

"Addicted To Excitement" takes the "Don't Like (Remix)" instrumental, but the comparisons stop there. Thack unleashes a vicious first verse and a hypnotic hook that makes you forget the original versions.

I included a verse I did over "New God Flow" and simply titled it "Bebop & Rocksteady". You'll note from the opening line that Thack was supposed to be on the song as well. It's only 16 bars but I'm quite proud of the verse and wanted to share.

With Thack's career on the rise and mine winding down (at least for now) with a baby on the way, I didn't want to let music this good set on our hard drives. Maybe Thack and I will get to do that mixtape someday. But if not, enjoy what might have been from a Thack & Hyphen project.
