If you’re not familiar, let us introduce you to West Coast rapper, 100s. The Berkeley, CA native made noise following the release of his debut project, Ice Cold Perm, released in 2012. Fast forward and 100s has just delivered his new EP, IVRY. Possessing characteristics reminiscent of artists such as Too Short, 100′s has also been compared to the sounds of James Brown and Nipsey Hussle; yet he still manages to stand alone, captivating listeners each step of the way. Hard-hitting production paired with a wide-variety of different vibes makes for great replay value. Upon listening, early favourites include “Inglish Outro”, “Thru My Veins,” and “Ten Freaky Hoes.” Stream/download 100s’ “IVRY” below.
