A glacier could never survive in this weather, right? Tell that to Gods’Illa, a Forestville trio whose new single, “Glaciers,” is a heater focused on delivery, not depth. The three-minute track, with a driving bass drum provided by Joe D., is full of memorable verses, none more remarkable than those of Powerful Rasheem and Acem Eternal Mind. “If you’re following fads, I’m glad/If it wasn’t for y’all, I wouldn’t be God,” Powerful raps. “My brother’s graduatin’ higher education/ miminal celebration/ eviction’s what we facin,” Ace says.
“Glaciers” is a standout track on an impressive album, and a small reason to hang on to hip-hop. Hell, even the group’s brother Victorious Jihad (who doesn’t rap) tries to get a little as the album version concludes.
