Berner, the San Francisco stoner slash Taylor Gang soldier, is no stranger to collaborative albums. A few months back, he released a joint project called Vibes with The Lox legend Styles P, which was unsurprisingly heavy on the weed raps. Now, the man who brought COOKIES to the weed game has teamed up with the Bulletproof South Memphis rapper Young Dolph to deliver a collaborative album called Tracking Numbers.
“Knuckles” is a musical meeting of the bosses which finds Berner and Dolph going in over a refreshing sampled beat. The high pitched vocal effect is reminiscent of some vintage Kanye West production, and the duo slides in to deliver a pair of street-friendly verses. And let’s be honest, who doesn’t appreciate an assist from Guwop? Gucci Mane comes for a closing verse, completing the trifecta with his signature blend of gangster charisma and humor.
