Cousin Stizz continues to build off the hype that came from 2015’s Suffolk County, this time with “Gain Green.” With Boston’s hip-hop scene quietly progressing, Stizz might very well be the best out from The Hub. After premiering on Oliver El-Khatib’s set on this past weekend’s episode of OVO Sound Radio, “Gain Green” serves as a warning shot that Cousin Stizz is ready to make a leap. The Dorchester native is set to release a new project over the course of the summer, which will provide the 23-year-old with a platform to live up to the hype and give some insight into the emcee’s progression over the past year.
To date, the partnership between Cousin Stizz and producer Dumdrumz has forged all hits, no misses and “Gain Green” keeps the streak alive. The simple beat from Dumdrumz lays the foundation for a low-key, catchy banger that has its vibe well-captured in its simplistic visuals. Speaking with The Fader, Stizz describes the track as “just a joint you can ride around to, mack to, to smoke to, and to chill to. It’s everything, it’s the lifestyle.”
