DRE! takes his experiences of growing up in West Philadelphia in his neighborhood of Cobbs Creek and turns it into his debut EP. He starts Cobbs Creek slow with a lazy flow over an enchanting beat that reminds me of a morning blunt. It then picks up to everyday situations that surrounded DRE! as riding around his city, wondering if he has enough EBT on his card, not doing shit with his friends, dodging hella crazy girls and more. He wraps everything up with “Bestfriend Duties” as he discusses helping out his best friend leads to the demise of another close friend-putting the entire project into perspective. For a debut, this was executed on a more experienced level. I’m looking forward to more music from DRE! Listen to Cobbs Creek below.
