Curtis Williams Embraces the High on 'Face It' - Premiere
Atlanta rapper indulges his favorite pastime

Atlanta rapper Curtis Williams focuses on his favorite pastime, smoking pot, on his laid-back track "Face It." The cut from the summer's Half Forgotten Daydreams mixtape showcases his rapid, compact flow, subverting the usual languid pace of weed-rap.

Meanwhile, in contrast to Williams' edged delivery, his beat takes on a psychedelic quality. Warm notes drift in the background while a Theremin wail rises and falls. The whole thing feels hazy, referencing the smoke he savors throughout the video.

A founding member of the hip-hop collective Two-9, Williams and his pals have kept busy lately. Fellow member Reese also recently released his own tape, which Williams showed up on. FatKidsBrotha, a duo within Two-9, is set to release their mixtape later this month. By year's end, it looks like the group's buzz might turn into a full-blown high.
