Since its release, “Hoe” was packaged with a few of Giáp’s past cuts in “Black Iverson,” “I Need Bands” and “Pose” featuring Wiz Khalifa and Curren$y — ultimately forming his new 4-track EP, Guap. This is the Oakland rapper’s first project since dropping 1176 in 2021 with producer !llmind.
While “Hoe” is the only new track on the project, it stays in tune with the other singles showing how he spends his day-to-day life: Getting money and forgetting relationships. It’s a laid-back, chill offering that gives off the West Coast vibe that Guap has seemingly perfected, flowing over the beat perfectly while asserting his number one priority: Not needing “no hoe.”
I don’t need a hoe, I need a whole lot of paper
I don’t need a hoe, I need a whole vacation
I been outside doing fraud all month
I ain’t never seen a n—a like me once“Hoe” – Guapdad 4000
Along with the new track, Guap’s three aforementioned singles all share a similar message. While the project comes in at just under 12 minutes, it captures your attention throughout with its charming West Coast bounce. “Pose” with Wiz Khalifa and Curren$y is the EP’s highest charting track, currently sitting at over 1,200,000 Spotify streams.
In addition to the EP, Guap is also sharing a new film titled “Stoop Kid.” In partnership with Amazon Music and acclaimed label 88Rising — which houses prominent Asian-American acts in Rich Brian, Joji and more — Guap’s trailer for “Stoop Kid” alludes to the rapper’s upbringing in California. “I was just a kid, trying to raise kids,” he said in the minute-long clip, as the film is set to release on Thursday (July 21).
While we wait for Guap’s next full-length project, this new EP has old and new sounds that all fans of the West Coast will certainly love on first spin.
