Best Song: Creek Boyz, ‘With My Team’

soundcloud.com/creekboyz111

The city talks a lot of shit about the county, but it’s rarely that simple in Baltimore. Consider Woodlawn’s Creek Boyz, whose song ‘With My Team,’ which you’ve no doubt heard on 92Q and playing off kids’ phones when you’re waiting for the bus and sailing out car windows, is a Bone Thugs-N-Harmony-esque ode to friends and family and a tribute to those shot and killed. Rappers J Reezy, Turk P Diddy, Young Fedi Mula, and ETS Breeze’s melancholy celebration of friendship and survival—literally, early on it bemoans Baltimore’s homicide rate and later they rap, “Thank God I ain’t on no T-shirt”—has also got the group signed to major label 300 Ent. Now the song is on iTunes, Spotify, and everywhere else—an exciting example of Baltimore rap’s fortitude and creativity.
