A lot of rappers that fell under the CTE branch in the last couple years have sort of fell off the radar and Jeezy has kept it pushing. Always being an affiliate, Wink Loc hasn’t fell into that notion despite almost a year hiatus since his last release. He’s got a currently untitled EP in the works and that’s where “Want Me Dead” will appear on. T-Minus production is always top notch and fitting for these three. This will also be on DJ Folk’s FolkTape. Previously: Video: Wink Loc – Locomotive 3 (Intro)
With an intro track, you’re supposed to successfully capture the attention of whoever is playing. It may be your first and only impression. We see artists like Meek Mill and Los master this art well, and on the underground scene Wink Loc seems to have done very well for the intro off Locomotive 3. The scene for the video is cool to look at when you get a chance. Directed by Benjamin West. Previously: Mixtape: Wink Loc – Locomotive 3 Follow @SermonsDomain
As Wink Loc’s name grew in this business, so did the Locomotive series. Young Jeezy may not be focused on putting his artists on, but Wink makes sure to do it himself with all the hard work that went into this project. Locomotive 3 is easily the biggest installment, gathering features from Pusha T, Smoke Dza, Tone Trump, A-Mafia, L.E.P. Bogus Boys, Jigg and more. The production is from Harry Fraud, The Olympicks, Rico Beats and others.
Shot in blue vision, Wink Loc provides a video to his most recent release, “Welcome 2 Da Terridome.” It captures a lot of street essence. Directed by Jay Dawg. One thing is for certain, Wink should do more records with The Olympicks if they sound like this. No date yet, but expect Locomotive 3 to be in your iPod playlists in the next week or so.

Next to the J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League, The Olympicks have to be one of the best production teams in hip-hop. They provide a resplendent beat for Wink Loc to rock his street-influenced, “I made it” rhymes over for his second single. Put this on repeat for a couple times. “Welcome 2 Da Terrirdome” is that good. Locomotive 3 will be arriving in the station in a couple weeks. Previously: Wink Loc Ft.

“Walking with the lord, but I stay strapped” CTE affiliate Wink Loc is dropping the third installment of Locomotive sometime in February. The mixtape’s first single, “Til’ They Kill Me,” has a guest appearance from Shoota getting vivid about the streets. Then, Wink comes and adds to that with lines like, ”Say they free me from these prison walls/ in the streets I’m still a prisoner.” Listen below. Previously: Tone Trump Ft.
