Everything is bigger in Texas, and nothing personifies that like San Antonio-based alternative hip-hop collective FRITOGANG. Bringing back that timeless co-op feels of a group, the nine-piece ensemble represents an incredible amount of musical knowledge, passions, and styles that mesh together perfectly. After a string of EPs released throughout the early half of the pandemic, the fast-rising collective is back with Hush!, a 10-track body of work that serves as their first full-length project since 2019’s Garage Sale!.
Produced entirely by FRITOGANG member Dubbisdope with additional production from former PNTHN contributor Por Vida, Hush! allows each member to bring something different to the table while leaning on what makes them unique. Presenting sonics that amplifies the group’s drive for exploration, FRITOGANG pulls styles from all directions, welding them together to create something that truly belongs at the front of the line, establishing their mark on a constantly evolving genre. The energy sprawled throughout the 34-minute offering is greatly attributed to that hunger to create something new and exciting that doesn’t fit in a box.
Speaking on the release, the guys stated: “We hope people take away not only some of their favorite songs of the year but that FRITOGANG is one of the best and most underrated rap groups out right now.” There is no better time to get put onto a captivating artist or group of artists in the early stages of their career, so get familiar with FRITOGANG—they aren’t going anywhere.
