Boombox Cartel turns in highly anticipated joint effort with J.I.D., ‘Reaper’
Four years after opening his sophomore “Dia De Los Muertos” mix with an unreleased original, Boombox Cartel has finally delivered his highly-anticipated ID “Reaper” alongside Atlanta-based rapper J.I.D. The track serves as the lead single to Boombox Cartel’s upcoming Cartel II EP, which will be released in late May.
Beginning with a slinking trap beat and humming synth accents, J.I.D. weaves his instantly recognizable vocalwork through the whirling, winding instrumentals. The first drop growls and reverberates, delivering a heavy handed punch. Roping together hype hip-hop elements with brooding low-end dub and trap components makes for a menacing, festival-ready setlist weapon.
Recently, Boombox Cartel teamed up with Moody Good for the collaboration “Shadow.” Prior to that, the Mexico-born producer had released the highly anticipated track “All Again” with KRANE. Meanwhile, J.I.D. joined Jay Rock and Noname for a remix of Anderson .Paak‘s “Lockdown.” Listen to the pair’s “Reaper” below.
