With previously released singles like the tumbling, eerie “Beat Monster,” the minor-key stuntfest “What’s Happenin,” and the exuberant Lil Gotit & Guap Tarantino collab “Live It Up,” Blessed Lil Bastards 3 is Mal & Quill’s most complete project yet. The duo meld their minds and create a two-headed monster–it’s often hard to pick out where one brain stops and the other begins. Featuring additional appearances from Hoodrich Pablo Juan, Q Money, and Lil Co, Blessed Lil Bastards 3 arrives via 1017 Eskimo/Alamo.
Speckled with Spanish guitar, “Miami” is a change-of-pace for the duo, a bright counterpoint to the rest of the tape’s atmospheric trap. In the video, the two rappers chill on a yacht in the canals of Miami, joined by their mentor Gucci Mane, their labelmate Z Money, and a group of gorgeous models. Rocking ornate and bright attire appropriate for their environment, and in Lil Quill’s case, the flyest sombrero you’ve ever seen, “Miami” finds the two childhood friends letting loose and cracking a smile.
