Wax – The Cookout Chronicles [mixtape] (ft. Open Mike Eagle, Intuition, G Love & more)


Rapper/songwriter Wax is releasing his new mixtape “The Cookout Chronicles” on Friday, September 2, 2016. The Internet rap pioneer has developed a dedicated following over the last several years, a following which is sure to embrace this project. After finding major success in Europe with his hit “Rosana” and viral success worldwide with his creative video content, Wax is now in a place where he just does what he wants. In creating “The Cookout Chronicles” over the last year or so, he just wanted to write and record “feel good shit.”

The mixtape has more featured artists than any project Wax has dropped in the past. The features include blues rap legend G Love, art rapper Open Mike Eagle, rapper and TV personality Awkwafina, and underground rap heavyweights Jerron Benton, Sahtrye, and Intuition. As always, his twin brother Herbal T also appears on a track. While Wax handles most of the production himself, his frequent collaborator EOM adds some beats, as do a few other producers. Experimental bass guitar prodigy Mono Neon adds two tracks to the project.

The Cookout Chronicles is Wax’s most cohesive project to date. Wax says that the project is designed to be listened to all the way through, as he intended to craft the perfect soundtrack to a backyard barbeque. The songs are generally of the “feel good” variety, and showcase the rapper’s talent for intricate, witty, rap bars and also his deftness with melody and harmony. From the bossa nova inspired “First Love” to the blues/funk jam “So High”, the songs can accompany a cold beer on the porch or an all out party. For the hardcore rap fans, “Bulletproof” veers off the chill path, with an evil head nodding beat that would work well as the soundtrack to a worldstar fight video. The mixtape contains an astounding amount of quotable rap lines, leaving the listener to repeatedly ask “how the fuck did he think of that?”
