There’s still time to nominate local icons for Best of D.C.
Visto made waves this spring with “How That Pxssy Taste,” a seedy strip-club jam that we called one of D.C.’s defining summer jams. His lovelorn second single, “Fxcking Around,” found Visto struggling with the hard rules of monogamy.
On his new album, Before Euphoria—-released today—-the MC and vocalist sounds chill almost throughout, rapping verses just as easily as he slips into a falsetto to croon his slippery come-ons. The album’s teeming with sex jams, but Visto turns in a couple of weed anthems, too (“Acapulco Gold” and the “Summer Madness“-sampling “Wakin Bakin”).
Visto ropes in a host of local artists to help him out, including ‘Folkz, Nike Nando (on “Acapulco Gold”), Kyonte, Black Cobain (on “One Night”), and Fat Trel (on “Make You Move”).
Listen to Before Euphoria after the jump.
