New York native So Dope remains hot on the pursuit of a sonic legacy, the likes of which he continues to make reduce by reduce. So Dope requires his subsequent constructive step towards this extended-term musical objective with “Catch Me Now.” The successor to July’s ‘come for me,’ So Dope’s newest expounds upon the hip-hop/trap hybrid foundation that the producer laid on his earlier single.
Whereas ‘come for me’ featured Atlanta’s personal Xzaye, “Catch Me Now” recruits ascendant rapper, Gavin the Hotrod, whose name aptly foreshadows the verbal firepower that he will bring to the track. Bass kicks with rigor at “Catch Me Now’s” punchy, trap-flavored break downs. Dubstep influence is also audible in the gritty character of these drops. They slice by means of the downtempo background beat that undergirds the verses with a sharp sense of ease to mark a different So Dope production replete with horsepower.
