Reginald Gohnson - Bomb Raps & Throwbacks
We missed 4/20 by a couple days but, hey; Reginald Gohnson recently released Bomb Raps & Throwbacks with the promise of much more music to come.
Trust us, this project is dope (pun kind of intended) Bomb Raps & Throwbacks features a few familiar names including George Young - who lended both a verse and production greatness - Mike Red, Tony Delfreshco, Kab the Don and C.I.T.Y.. While Bomb Raps & Throwbacks is perfect to smoke to, it is much more than a "stoner" album, case in point "Revolution" featuring C.I.T.Y., the name is self-explanatory and it is definitely a stand out track on the project. The "Devil in a New Dress" freestyle is also a must listen as well as "Acres Home". Honestly just start from the beginning and enjoy. Lyrical skills are absolutely flexed all throughout Bomb Raps & Throwbacks. Keep up with Reginald Gohnson to see what he has up his sleeve for the rest of the year.

Produced by Chase Racc$ (Beaumont, TX), mixed by DJ SpaceCity (Houston, TX), "Where I'm From" has an old-school southern feel and Trill Art (Port Arthur, TX) brought the whole thing to life with him filming and editing skills. All together, the final product shows that home is home, no matter where it is. "Where I'm From" is oh so Texas and we love it. Keep up with Deezy Da Duce here for more releases.
