As 03 Greedo's 20-year prison bid continues, so too does his bid to remain relevant. He stashed a lot of music away in anticipation of a long hibernation, and his latest is Netflix & Deal, a 13-track collaborative tape with rising producer Kenny Beats. Greedo said that the project is based on movies he watched while he was dealing, and you only have to be half-paying attention to know he meant that literally.
03 Greedo has been incarcerated since June 2018, but his legal troubles have not slowed down the Watts rapper's rollout of several projects, including his latest, Netflix & Deal, a collaborative LP produced by the prolific Kenny Beats. A slideshow to Greedo's favorite films, actors, and cinematic moments, each song on the 34-minute album is an ode to the artist's love of Netflix, cinema, and drug escapades, a welcome and refreshing approach. The YouTube documentary, The Making of Netflix & Deal, displays some behind-the-scenes clips of 03 and Kenny Beats in the studio, working hard to record as much as possible before Greedo had to report for his 20-year sentence; "It's not the land of opportunity, that's what I really be saying," Greedo tells Kenny in one of the more intimate moments of the documentary.
