After months of touring throughout the whole USA and South America, Europe’s biggest hiphop act Dope D.O.D. is ready to release fresh material. They have released a 17 track Mixtape called Acid Trap.The mixtape contains some interesting collaborations, with for example Three 6 Mafia’s DJ Paul and Da Goldminerz’ Simon Roofless.
Acid Trap is displaying a new sound, coming from the urge of doing something new and refreshing. They have been experimenting and clearly have no fear of introducing their listeners to a new Dope D.O.D.sound. This sound is no definite change. But, according to the group it’s a welcome variation, that shows their ingenuity and strong will to keep challenging themselves.
