Thelonious Martin is the new age sample king, this instrumental is just masterful. The switch up in the beginning of this joint is just plain ridiculous, producer of the year by far has to go to Thelo, it's a shame this jawn isn't longer. His last drop "Sleep Pattern" was ill as well, be sure to peep that while you're at it, they're definitely both tracks I could hear in rotation on Adult Swim.
Its been a while since we have been blessed with a Posse Cut from all four member's of the Black Hippy crew. This time around they go ahead remix Rocko's hit "U.O.E.N.O". Each of them prove why they belong on top with their unique wordplay. Kendrick is absolutely hilarious for that Sway line haha and Soulo's double entrendes continue to surprise me. It baffles me why we don't ever get new music from Jay Rock, as he lives through the guest verses on his label mate's albums, which he absolutely murders!! Hopefully we get new material from him soon! Until then enjoy this thumpin' posse cut!
It's been some time since Poly has dropped music, his sound is a fresh combination between Bay and L.A. vibes and some of you may know him as a part of Tha Futuristiks responsible for numerous L.A. artist's hits such as Dom Kennedy, Casey Veggies and more. Here he enlists Freddie Gibbs who moved from Gary, IN to L.A. and has been working with Dom and Poly more closely, after their collaborations on "Menace II Society" from Gibbs' Cold Day In Hell, "Hangin" from Dom's The Yellow Tape and more.
Travi$ Scott's lyrics may not be his strong point, and when comparatively thrown amongst fellow G.O.O.D. affiliates Q-Tip, Mos Def, Common, etc. fans of music may not see right away why Travi$ can hold his own, the thing that makes Travi$ Scott truly dope is his experimentalism. His flow is unique, and his production really is "upper echelon" (pun intended). Although I can't say that I enjoyed all the tracks on here, when Travi$ hits the mark it does work out in his favor. Undoubtedly, Travi$ Scott will make waves in the music industry, as he landed on this year's XXL Freshmen Class of 2013 and his verse on the Cruel Summer track "Sin City" was a standout from the entire album and he was also recently picked up by T.I.'s Grand Hustle. Featuring Toro y Moi, Theophilus London, Paul Wall, James Fauntleroy and more this 13 track tape is something fans have been anticipating for some time, and this tape was a solid release from Travi$ Scott who brings many different musical tastes to the table on this project. A standout is definitely the collaboration with Theophilus London and Paul Wall "Dance On The Moon", which brings Theo's knack for catchy hooks to the table alongside futuristic production from Travi$ and a gritty breakdown in which Paul Wall drops a stellar verse, similar to Kanye's "Drive Slow" in 2013.
