Sample-Based Banger Flanked By Additional Orchestration
|By Amir Said (Sa’id)|
Although I’ve never really been a big fan of R&B/Rap hybrid efforts, I do recognize that sometimes the two music sub-traditions can be merged together rather nicely. Such is the case with Troubleman’s—Raekwon assisted—”Bastard Child.” Much in the same respectable vein of Gang Starr’s “Royalty,” a collaboration that brought together DJ Premier and Guru with K.C. and Jo Jo, “Bastard Child” is anchored by the hip hop/rap tradition, and further accented by modern R&B production themes.
