Avatar Darko - Soviet Goonion 2

Posted by on Thu, Jan 31, 2013 at 1:18 PM


Daniel "Avatar Darko" Degtjar has to be the only Seattle rapper (besides his homeboy Nacho Picasso, who had a super prolific 2012) who releases quality mixtapes with the frequency of rappers from hotspots like Atlanta and NYC. Here's his latest, Soviet Goonion 2. I haven't cracked it yet but I can confidently predict that upon listening you'll find some harrowing gun talk, drug abuse, and liberties taken, in Avatar's distinct Ukraine/Seattle/ Hollywood-bred "emo grunge trap" style. If 50 Cent ever started a G-Unit Russia, he'd better make Av' a captain.

I'm sick of the Trinidad rip offs. It's only cool when he does it.
