Born in ’94 Quintin Tarintinto started loving poetry and music at a real young age. Q.T. started writing music back in 2005 in Jonesboro, GA just south of Atlanta. Like many artists, there were several groups that Tarintinto participated in, but none ended up not working out. Taking a step back from music to weigh the options in his life, he finally decided to get back to work, because this was more than a hobby it was a passion. After countless days, nights and hours put into the studio working on his craft, Quintin Tarintinto, a part of UnderClassXlX, alongside Genjo’TFRK, is ready to jump back out full force with the new sound.
Quintin Tarintinto is back with a solid album that will leave the listener wanting more. All the tracks on “BUY (Biggest Underdog Yet)” are fresh and have a great vibe. I have listened to this 7-track album more than a dozen times and continue to listen to it. This album is for anyone who is looking for solid production with unique lyrics. From the start, the album evokes what made those mixtapes so successful. A small group of producers that help the sound remain cohesive. Producers featured on this album, include Eli Myles, TeezyO’Shawty, Luxury and BeatsByEmani.
Tarintinto is a Southern artist with a twist. Yes his beats are scrumptious, and exactly what you’d expect from the South. But he backs that up with some grand lyrical schemes and words. In this day in age of hip-hop or rap you rarely get albums where you can rock out to most of the songs. Out of 7 songs…I liked 7. Of course the content is not for that faint of heart but if you want an album that bangs in your ride and gets your head bobbin this is the perfect album.
“BUY (Biggest Underdog Yet)” is a culmination, or a mosaic of the sounds and ideas running through Quintin Tarintinto’s mind, the end result being a very concise, inspired package that is sure to keep the neighbors awake for the next few months until Tarintinto decides to release yet another album. There is a whole lot more than inebriated crooning going on here, but rather a series of street anthems that do more than their jobs.
The album opens with the slow-burner, “The OtherSide (Prod. By Eli Myles)”. The second track, “Facebook (Prod. By Eli Myles)”, features a gloves-off Quintin Tarintinto spitting social venom over a rather nefarious beat. The album is baron of features which brings a somewhat sober perspective into this listening experience. Q.T. really held true to his gritty street sound on “Bitch No Mo’ (Prod. By TeezyO’Shawty)”, before moving going full-on lyrical with, “Yeen Know It (Prod. By Eli Myles)”.
If you make it to track 5 without restarting the album there is more to be enjoyed, like an epic opus there are three more tracks. Lyrically and flow-wise, “Entertain Ya (Prod. By Luxury)”, “Enough Ft GenJo’TFRK (Prod. By BeatsByEmani)” and “Run It (Prod. By Eli Myles)”, are probably the best tracks on this collection. The instrumentals too, are dark and sinister, lending to the ominous atmosphere Quintin Tarintinto lays off on these three tracks. All-round this album is bad-ass. Period. You’ll love it!
