Bass Chops Underscore Premier’s Boom Bap Send-Up; Joell Ortiz Delivers Solid Rhyme”
|By Amir Said (Sa’id)|
This beat is “workmen” status for Preme; one more reminder of how even his most simple joints are MusicStudy worthy. The staggering bass chops, just one of Premier’s recent signatures, goes well with Joell’s deliberate flow and lyrical punch. I’m increasingly becoming more impressed with Joell Ortiz, which is why I’m glad to see he’s hooked up DJ Premier. As far as dope rhymes and beats go, this is a logical match-up.
“Sing Like Bilal,” off of Joell’s recently released “Farewell Summer EP,” is BeatTips Approved
Now only if a new Marco Polo and Joell Ortiz joint could pop off… (Ay, Marco, make that happen.)
