The production here is boss. It embodies a sample of “My Melody” by Eric B. and Rakim. The robust foundation, vintage Hip-Hop musical details, contagious rhythm, and colorful vibe result in a world-class combination. The hook is arresting. The delivery is full of life and the lyrics are accomplished. The verses exceed expectations. Babyface Monster gets the ball rolling, Ace Da Vinci handles the follow up, and Kenlo Key drives things home. All three artists contribute masterly flows, exclusive wordplay, and airtight rhymes. They pay tribute to the golden era of Hip-Hop in a very major way. A sprinkling of memorable opening lines from BFM are: “I need background singers. Four ring fingers. Shell toe Adidas. Old school beepers. 40 cal heater right next to the penis. Loud a** speakers. Kenwood Tweeters. Top model divas with exotic a** features while I guzzle on a 40 with a shorty with my feet up.” The descriptiveness of those words creates a nice visual for the listener. As a whole, this is a shining nostalgic themed joint.
**My Two Cents: This song turned out really well. The fellas worked the sample impressively and truly captured the essence of Hip-Hop in it’s origins. So I thought it would be a perfect post for “Throwback Thursday.” The Making Of A Monster seems to be packed with nothing but high quality tunes. Let me find out that BFM has the hottest album dropping this Summer. I can’t wait until August. Make sure you keep up with the movement by visiting the provided links in the review. -MinM
