Pillage Vatican City is a mixtape that every fan of hip-hop needs to listen to. For better or for worse, the current hip-hop scene is focused heavily on features, crews and image. Chris Villa managed to drop a mixtape with no guest MCs at all, and it doesn’t hurt the quality of the album at all. Although most of the best beats on the mixtape come from Hanz, Villa is a formidable producer himself which is demonstrated nicely in this bonus track ’30 Deep’. ’30 Deep’ has a shuffling electronic beat which is quite different from some of the harder beats that were featured on Pillage Vatican City. His flow is really developed on that song and the result is possibly one of my favorite tracks from Villa yet.
