Is Thought You Knew the hottest Hip Hop R&B Rap track dropped in 2018 so far? Probably. I haven’t heard any other artist with as much hype packed into their bars as PartyBoy Woodz did with his latest drop Thought You Knew. Whilst the insanely enigmatic Urban artist’s lyrical flow may have been quite heavily distorted by effects strangely enough it doesn’t limit the amount of organic texture that is found within his playful lyrical offerings.
Perhaps what I loved most about Thought You Knew was the fact it was so seamless I felt it unnecessary to dissect the sound in persuit for flaws because the overall vibe of the mid-tempo flaming track was so fresh. If anyone can make themselves stand out in the overly swamped Hip Hop Rap scene It’s PartyBoy Woodz with his infectious charisma which will make you fall in love with him before the verse even runs through in his sardonically genius anti-love song.
