When it comes to assessing a Hot Sugar production, the binary boils down to the methodology of Associative Music and the rap-jocks' tweet frenzy of “this shit hot”. Hot Sugar gives morsels to the production theorists, while satisfying the all-important credential of producing a banger.
On “Zanny Bath”, he enlists the help of Bill Ding to wax on moving weight, cunninlyngus, and why not… being a cunning linguist of street slang. Much like Ne$$ of Weekend Money, Bill Ding utilizes the Hot Sugar template to purge the demons of being a neighborhood pusherman turned rapper with as many debaucherous anecdotes as fishscales in the duffle bag. Claiming to have gotten “Most Likely To Rob You” in the senior supperlatives, Bill Ding's a new blip on our rap radar, but earned approval on “Zanny Bath”.
The Made Man EP is the fourth Hot Sugar solo effort titled with the Double M alliteration (Moon Money, Muscle Milk, Midi Murder). Wonder what that's about?
Hot Sugar's Made Man EP is out October 1 on Greedhead.
