NYC meals and beverage bigwig Gregory Abbott and his spouse, Marcia, allegedly paid $125,000 to increase their daughter’s SAT and ACT scores — as half of the college admissions scandal. Maybe subsequent they may shell out dough to inflate the streaming numbers for his or her rapper son, Malcolm.
And even higher, perhaps they may pay some of us again for going via the torture of really listening to Billa, which is Malcolm’s rap deal with.
That’s actually the one method we might think about his 2018 EP racking up any respectable quantity of spins. When The Submit caught up with blunt-puffing Billa outdoors the Abbott household house overlooking the Metropolitan Museum of Artwork, he instructed us, “Take a look at my CD, ‘Cheese & Crackers.’ ”
So, for higher or worse, we did.
On the opening monitor, “Good Cracker,” Billa spits about ”rising up f—-d-up on Fifth Avenue” and hanging “outdoors the prep faculty” over a plodding beat to match his movement. Name it white-privilege rap.
Later, on “Jack Boy,” he asks “The place the Jews at?” in a single of essentially the most un-gangsta shout-outs ever. On the identical monitor, Billa brags about “gettin’ mad money each night time.” Little doubt from his dad and mom.
One other music, “If I Misplaced My Cash,” makes you consider simply how a lot Billa could be struggling if he was “lifeless broke” and had to really earn some actual cash within the rap sport.
However hey, a minimum of this five-track EP lives up to its title: There’s loads of cheese being served up right here. Don’t say we didn’t warn you: Billa has a brand new mission, “Harvey,” dropping Friday, March 15. And, sure, you’re studying that appropriately — @infamousbill has greater than 70,000 Instagram followers.
