A theme post? Sure why not. Recently I’ve noticed I’ve been listening to a mess of really heavy songs (as least according to what my iTunes is telling me). I’m not sure what the connection is to my listening habits as of late, but it seemed like a good reason to showcase some new and old cuts I’ve been giving play.
Round 1 – Chaka Khan w/ Mary J. Blidge. You read right. This is some hard shit here. I really have no idea where this is from, or what the story is with it. I know it’s new and it sounds like some Rich Harrison formula shit. I’ve been bumping this as of late, so I figured I’d spread it around. Anyone got any info on this cut? Spill it, cause I’m all ears.
Chaka Khan – Disrespectful (feat. Mary J. Blige)
Round 2 – Saigon – DAMN. I admit, I was not feeling the Saigon stuff I was hearing, but this cut is FIYAH! Of course, Just Blaze is on the beat and it’s nuts. I keep thinking I’m going to get sick of Just Blaze beats, but they keep coming. I’m pretty sure his secret weapon is dippin into rock records (shhhhh!). This cut is killin it and is heavy rotation. Keep your earholes ready for the album soon coming.
Saigon – Don’t You Baby (yet unreleased?)
Round 3 – Willie Hutch. That’s right, we dippin way back on this one. From the Foxy Brown OST, this is a recent favorite of mine. I’m not sure why. I think it just hits that same vein for me that Baby Huey did with Hard Times (we’ll save that for another post). There’s just something about it that gets me. It’s thick, it’s heavy, and it’s even got the bongos cracka lackin. Willie works it out, no doubt. SO good. R.I.P.
