DeLorean waited eleven months for the accolades and success to come from his Nights At The International Ballroom tape before dropping another one. And if you’ve been paying attention to DeLo then you know Small Goals was in the works before he went to the ballroom.
“Apollo Creed,” the tape’s opener sounds exactly as one would expect about one of the best characters in the Rocky universe. Sparse pianos and DeLo’s voice humming along like a boxer with the heavy bag. Every bar thumps and drives home a further point. It’s up there with the “Take Me Back” opener and “Lately” with Scotty ATL. The 12-track tape features heavy hitters such as Paul Wall and Killa Kyleon for “Doors Wide Open,” Rob Gullatte for “25 Lighters” and guest appearances from Bam Rogers, Jazz Anderson, Skilla, Luke Whitney and Hogg Booma.
