Load It Up, Vol. 01, is a return to form for LA rap luminary 03 Greedo. Since beginning his incarceration, Greedo has been steadily releasing music, dropping three full lengths in 2019 with three different producers: Mustard, Travis Barker, and Kenny Beats. On Load It Up, Vol. 1, Greedo links with his longtime producer Ron-Ron. They fit like a glove, with Ron-Ron’s bassy, spacey production backing Greedo’s warbly melodies. It’s less rappity-rap than his projects of last year, and IMO, it’s Greedo at his best — experimenting with vocal runs and talking romantic shit, drug shit, and any other shit he wants. This project comes in light of disappointing news that Greedo was not granted parole from his prison stay in Texas. While Greedo’s freedom hangs in the balance, he was able to record a special introduction to the album, calling in from the Middleton Unit where he’s currently away.
