Don of CashOverClout & Ace da Vinci – Duke Nukem

Westside native Don of CashOverClout joined forces with Ace da Vinci and aged themselves just a bit with “Duke Nukem.”

In yet another CashOverClout/SmartMouf collaboration, Don of CashOverClout and Ace da Vinci float over an Ace da Vinci produced beat on “Duke Nukem.” Named for the video game original released in 1991, “Duke Nukem” is two minutes and 56 seconds of vibes and sounds a little like a video game.

Don of CashOverClout rightfully takes pride in his performance, declaring “lyrically, this one of the hardest songs I ever did.” A hard lyrical performance that was absolutely necessary to be befitting of the Ace da Vinci beat. Don employed a laidback flow that emphasized his lyrics without overpowering the beat.

While Ace da Vinci outdid himself in the way of production, his lyrical performance was notable as well. Ace da Vinci’s flow while completely different from Don’s was equally perfect over the beat, making “Duke Nukem” complete and reiterating that CashOverClout and SmartMouf is always a dope combination.

Chloé – Don’t Fix

Some people always seem to have the best advice for situations that are none of their concern. Chloé teamed up with Joel Q to put those people in their place for her latest release “Don’t Fix.”

Chicago based singer and songwriter, Chloé takes aim at that one person always keeping tabs on a relationship that isn’t their own with “Don’t Fix.” The lyrics reiterate that what may not work for some works for others and it’s no one’s place to judge, no matter how quirky the relationship seems.

Paired perfectly with Joel Q, even more shots are fired at the lonely nosey souls always soliciting their opinions where they’re unwanted. The rapper specifically calls out the single, gold digger struggling to find a relationship of her own and pretending to be satisfied with her situation.

The visual is perfect for the spring time that Chicago is struggling to see. Colorful and creative, filmed in grassy areas “Don’t Fix” is somewhat reminiscent of Alice in Wonderland. Whimsical and fun, Don’t Fix features parasols, bubbles and a kimono clad Chloé singing in a row boat in the grass.
