The post-Cousin Stizz / Michael Christmas wave in Boston is going to be a powerful one. The city’s hip-hop scene as a whole is bubbling right now, but with a couple of artists starting to break through on a national level, it’s all but guaranteed that the youth is going to rise—and fast.
Dorchester’s Pistola is a new name to TFH, but with his latest single, “Chop SUUii,” it feels like he’ll be back again very soon. Produced by Johnny Tsunamii, “Chop SUUii” is a statement record, a drugged-out hit powered by subtle melodies and braggadocious raps that doesn’t feel defined by any area code or sub-genre. It feels purely Pistola, and though whatever that truly means remains to be seen, I’m excited to hear more.
