What’s a king to a beast? Doughbeezy gives fans his King Beezy album a day early.

Let it never be said that something funny happens on a Doughbeezy release day. The Houston rapper has been teasing and promising King Beezy for over a year now. To fight off any kind of early leak and build anticipation, he only tossed out one song as a feeler, the cinematic “Lately.”

Rejoice to all those who’ve been following The Southeast Beast since the original Kickback Sundays. King Beezy, his 13-track new album, King Beezy is an exercise in both patience and power. “I’m so busy chasing a bag, I take naps standing on my feet,” he exclaims on the title track. Only minutes before was he once more looking back at the event that changed his life forever. He’d rather impart wisdom to his daughters and son and lay next to his wife than deal with that night over again. But he’s here and breathing still.

King Beezy goes on to accomplish something that Reggie Bush & Kool-Aid 2 tried but couldn’t completely stick.

King Beezy doesn’t hog the crown for Dough only. Doeman and GT Garza make an appearance on “Plug,” longtime collaborator Killa Kyleon shows up with that toothy smile circa Tyson in ’86 on “Leave Drank Alone.” The album’s emotional center can be found on “Respect,” where Q. Guyton finds a melody rocking back and forth like James Harden on the isolation and Delorean echoes both of their sentiments. Nobody wanted to do it or make it to a certain part of access. Delo may list off his resume as if he need remind you that he earned every spot.

Featuring KenTheMan’s show-stealing verse on “Work Somethin’,” as well as guest appearances from KDOGG, BuddieRoe, BeatKing, Allie and more. King Beezy goes on to accomplish something that Reggie Bush & Kool-Aid 2 tried but couldn’t completely stick. That album was Dough trying to get his footing back; MJ a couple games into the first return after retirement. King Beezy, with its stretched out Missy Elliott sample on “F**k Harvey,” skits and the empty the soul spirit of “Holy Beezy” is back in 1996. “We gon’ push through this,” Dough raps on that record. He wasn’t kidding.
