Grooveline is a Lex Lugor produced track off the recently released Habits & Contradictions full lengther. Its by young Black Hippy, Quincy M. Hanley aka Schoolboy Q…
Sans an actual full blooded beat, its a cut with a grown-ass tale to tell, as well as employing the vocal talents of Marlena Shaw from her 1975 alblum Who Is This Bitch, Anyway?
Ive posted cos some people that claim they know Hip-Hop in 2012 think that Rap has to have a beat, and like Michael McDonald, they keep forgettin’ that Hip-Hop producers like Lexus Lugor are more than happy utilising beautiful soul music and progressin’ things along quite nicely thankyou very much.
Push it along, and quit hatin people !
BONUS – 320 vinyl rip of the Blue Note OG
Marlena Shaw – Who Is This Bitch, Anyway?
not a life changer, but, still a nice lil’ sumthing for the headphones (grado, that is)..
absorb the beat,realise that it’s probly the best flip of the B.Whizzle drums (no lisa stansfield) youv’e heard, forget the first rap singer, and tune in when Mr “the Truth” comes in..all of the Mc’s come wildly differently, but all shine, including Wale, who’s never really impressed me too much (although,the line about loving his mother, and never getting married says a little too much, also, ELTON)
most improved goes to Young Khalifa Man, sounds like he may of even got his pad out for this..not just rhyming, well i might add, but using some nice inflection to sprinkle some more flavour over this niiice beat..one for the pad, or pod, or whatever.
just doin’ my bit for real rap music. so many gems dropped, and it gets deeper with every listen. i think i’m only really checking for about ten dudes in 2011, Evidence is one of them..and real nice to hear someone cutting havoc’s verse from shook one’s, not p’s…guwan mickey!
