Drakeo The Ruler has just released his new project So Cold I Do Em 2. The 29-track album is a perfect closer for a year that Drakeo’s proved himself like no other. In the past year, after his release from incarceration in November 2020, he’s dropped 3 other successful solo projects, We Know The Truth, The Truth Hurts, Ain’t That The Truth, and now with the release of So Cold I Do Em 2––his hot streak continues. The album is filled with the consistency, catchiness, and ingenuity that Drakeo is known for and exhibits the sheer talent he possesses with ease. The album is filled with classic West Coast production, witty one-liners, and an eclectic array of flows––all of which are staples of Drakeo The Ruler’s music. On “GangNEm” (feat. Ralfy The Plug) (Pt.2), Drakeo glides over smooth keys and delivers sweet bars, resulting in a captivating and quick-witted track. “Stincs Run LA” shows him laying down a clever verse over waning strings and haunting production. Though Drakeo flexes his braggadocios lyrics on the album, he also reflects on the hardships of his lengthy-legal battle that resulted in his near three-year incarceration and subsequent plea deal and release in 2020. In the words of Drakeo on “No Love”, “They tried to throw the book at me, this a new chapter”. Drakeo The Ruler has overcome serious setbacks in the past few years, and now he has solidified himself as an icon in hip-hop and a staple in the West Coast music scene, and with the release of So Cold I Do Em 2––he’s only further capitalizing on his larger than life stature.
One of rap’s most prolific stars, Drakeo The Ruler continues his reign with Ain’t That The Truth, his third full-length project of the year. The 17-track release includes feature appearances from EST Gee, Peezy, GrindHard E, and Drakeo’s brother and Stinc Team co-founder, Ralfy the Plug. Highlights include the smooth and conversational “Flu Flam A Op,” the slick-talking “Stop Cappin,” and the fully-loaded Ralfy collaboration “Chops Out.” Ain’t That The Truth meshes Drakeo’s signature frantically nervous delivery with standout production. Always matching the drama and urgency found in the South Los Angeles streets, Drakeo shows growth and evolution with one of his most striking bodies of work to date.
