Scoop Jackson, the local Austin producer has seemingly worked with everybody who is popping in central Texas lately. He’s been teasing solo work for a long time and we finally get a listen to what we’ve been missing. He joins Austin hitmaker Baby Guwop on “Catch Me If You Can Pt. 2” with a verse and production, and it’s perfect.
Baby Guwop has a knack for making catchy auto-tune filled records that blend pop elements with rap. In February he released a full length EP titled Catch Me If You Can produced entirely by Scoop. It included hits like “Pop Star” and “Amy Winehouse” and introduced a successful sound that Guwop would continue to craft and build on.
“Catch Me If You Can Pt. 2” is a great continuation of the sound. Guwop makes happy music for the trap, and has me nodding my head through the whole song. Scoop jumps on the second verse and provides a great melody. “Black on black like my Timbs, got no room for new friends”, was stuck in my head all night after listening to this. The two obviously have a great connection, and Scoop has really crafted Guwop’s sound into something that is commercial enough to really be marketed and taken to the next level. Can’t wait to see what happens next.
