I am not going to start off this review by telling you how much I have been a fan of Venomous2000 over the years. That would be disingenuous. As a matter of fact, you won’t see too much music from him posted on this site since it’s inception. Honesty being the best policy, while I respected the man’s talent, I was never really “wowed” by his previous bodies of work, and I had purchased more than just a couple of projects.
9th Prince links up with Left Coast icon, Ras Kass for his new single, California Dreaming. It’s a definite hip hop lyricist’s take on an old rock classic. The transition by producer BP was on point. It maintained enough of the original elements of the song while making the neck snaps with those drums. This is a single off of 9th Prince’s soon to be released album, Shaolin Prince.
I am not sure where this track is from or destined to be, but it’s definitely worth sharing. The production is coming from Soul Professa and as you can see from the title we have 9th Prince and Inspectah Deck in charge of bar droppin’. The cut is a concoction of soul, funk, and grime, so if that sounds good to you, make sure you cop the single. I especially like the way the Professa chops up the production between the 16s. Dope.
There were well over one hundred songs leaked in the last few weeks. I passed on posting a lot of them because while they might have been good, they just didn’t move me. This Tzarizm produced track puts so many other of those ‘leaks’ to shame. The drums hit so hard and the piano chords make this production beastly. I have always been a fan of Midaz. He puts out quality work. He has an aggressive style and always seems like he is attacking mics. 9th Prince I am familiar with but really haven’t checked for him. That may soon change.
