HULKx may be born of Cincinnati, but, musically speaking, he is plenty southern at heart. HULKx rollicking amalgam of Trap inspired hip-hip and menacing cincinnati lyricism feels more indebted to Memphis or the Motor City than HULKx native Cincinnati.
Evidence of such is spread thickly across Go Time, HULKx’ third offering for Dirty Money Music Group. At thirteen tracks and just under 50 minutes, HULKx cranks out a sweat-stained slate of ugly, rootsy inner-city rap charged full of Cincinnati bravado. Following in the hefty footprints of his strong 2017 record, Undefeated, Go Time once again draws from a mid-western foundation, from the rip-up piano work of Metro Boomin and TM88’s 808 Mafia swagger to the wild aggression of upstarts like Tekashi 6ix9ine.
