Also, Black C, the only member not to get shot and killed has a new album out called 70’s Baby. It’s nice, pretty “classic” sounding but that’s fine.

My Money Straight by E-40 ft Black C, Guce, & Yung Jun

First I’m not a Fawty Wawtah fan. Despite having some classics and bringing attention back to the bay almost single handed midway through last decade, I just can’t get behind the guy 100%. As much as I like his unique staccato on/off time flow (forefather to dizzee rascal?) it just doesn’t fare well for smooth heavy tracks, which I’m rather partial to.

That’s why this is interesting. The beat has all the hallmarks of classic bay mobb muzik, Heavy synth bass lines that just ride on punctuated by very digital sound effects. Young Jun – what’s up with this kid, I know he’s from Atl, but I only ever see him with bay area rapper, reverse Zeitoven? – nails the hook perfectly. Smooth, drawling. The southern accent probably works better here than a Cali one would’ve.
Black C has never done any wrong on any track ever. Either with the greatest rap group ever or, like here, as a guest. Brings a little menace to the track and rides the beat to perfection.
Gucey Guce Doughboy is one of my favourite rappers that I like and you don’t know about. Thing is he also has a staccato style that works best over faster, busier beat – probably why they put him and E-40 at opposite ends of the track. And his verse just doesn’t quite stack up to work he did on albums like Giants and Elephants, Bullys with Fullies, Duffel Bag Boys, Draped Up and Chipped Out etc.

Regardless, It’s a nice track, beat is super nice and I’m getting pretty interested in the new “40 album, out this month.

Posse Cuts.

There’s something about tracks with a half dozen or so different rappers that I really like. Possibly because I grew up when rap groups were more common than solo artists. Having different people come in every verse (or half verse) stops shit getting boring and there can be some real entertainment later in the track when there are a couple of dubious artists and the quality falls to amateur hour levels.

Last few years it’s been the go to for a new artist with a hit single to get a remix with about 10 a-list rappers – think throw some D’s on it, black n yellow, aye bay bay. Which invariably ended up with Jim jones droning over the beat at some point because cam’ron seemed to go missing for a minute or two a couple years back. anyways, here’s some posse cuts worth checking out.

(sorry missed “hood like me”) Leanin on the Lac can be found along with some other slow motion sounds joints on the link  above.  To make up there’s an 11min remix of Wiz Khalifa’s “Black n Yellow” with Game, Jeezy and some others on there, it’s nice.
