Mixtape Of The Week: Geek Squad - AlterNative Thinking
Geek Squad is made up of five members (who are also high school friends) Acey Ace, M.I.C, Specta, Sub-Konshiss, and Wolfman Stylez. The group is really only a year or so in the making, so their individual personalities may be a little hard to distinguish as of now. But as a collective they definitely bring something different to the 305.
They aren't trap boys, and they definitely aren't trying to be. They just seem to be a group of hip-hop heads having fun over beats.
Their first mixtape, AlterNative Thinking really sounds like a full-length album. Aside from their straight-spittin' rhymes, the production stands out as definitely being influenced by numerous genres. From trip-hop, to electro, rock, and obviously hip-hop, group member Acey Ace takes pieces of each of those genres to really create a distinctive Geek Squad sound.
