This retail version of Hodgy Beats and producer Left Brain's 2010 mixtape offers a less complicated version of Odd Future's gory swagcore than controversial group leader Tyler, the Creator. Hodgy Beats rhymes hardcore about "Gunsounds" and copping b*tches -- on "64" he brags, "My flow's overheated, it needs cooling" -- while Left Brain has a facility for grimy and minimalist keyboard beats. The duo's creativity flags before album's end - this is a mixtape, after all - but not before launching heaters like "Primo" and "Deaddeputy."
