Friday was a treat for hip-hop fans, with new drops by Meek Mill and Tyler, the Creator. But rap listeners shouldn’t sleep on Zoey Dollaz, the Haitian artist and Freebandz signee who unleashed his EP M’ap Boule that day too.
The new EP’s title — Haitian slang for “everything’s good” — couldn’t be more fitting. Executive produced by Future (who also appears on two songs) and featuring the likes of Casey Veggies, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie and other hip-hop top dogs, M’ap Boule is already generating buzz online, and deservedly so.
Through seven tracks, the EP explores trap, R&B, reggae and even Asian-tinged sounds, ruminating on love and success in 2017. Take “Post & Delete,” the Chris Brown-featuring track on which Dollaz muses, “Shawty got all in her feelings, told her I ain’t with the Instagram/ Little mama when we chillin’/ I ain’t down with the filmin’/ No Snapchat or no Periscope/ You can do that shit but not by me though.” A new version of Dollaz’s 2016 hit “Bad Tings,” featuring new verses from Future and Tory Lanez, is sure to be another standout.
M’ap Boule comes right on the heels of the Miami rapper’s mixtape Nobody’s Safe, which dropped in May. Now, he’s hitting the road with Future for select stops on his labelmate’s HNDRXX Tour, alongside other big names like Ty Dolla $ign, Post Malone and Lil Yachty.
