As a historian of the game, OG Ron C knows slowed down music originated from Tampa, FL. He along with Bigga Rankin own one of the more noted co-signs in the industry and when they bestow it upon someone, it tends to pan out in the right direction. Charles B. represents those same areas where booty and bass music made waves and became a stronghold. His DJ Shalamar hosted The Unexpected takes minor cues from plenty of Southern rap forefathers as well as new schoolers. There’s whistles and commands on “Toot It Up”, bludgeoning synths and EDM cues on “Moment” and on “Throw Dat Back” which feels so mid ’90s strip club worthy you’d think you were at the Pool Palace in Atlanta..
