Slimm Calhoun, "This Young G"
As you can probably hear, Slimm Calhoun is an OutKast protégé, famous for his guest spots with them. He did eventually release an album on their label, The Skinny, which is a decent record. If you really enjoy Stankonia-era OutKast (and you should!), this is a good listen.
Ennio Morricone, "The Mission"
Always a treat for Noname to pop up! That flip when the verse starts is a delight, and her flow here is absolutely perfect. And those jazz/funk drums? Mmmm, just a banger all around.
James Brown, "It's A Man's Man's Man's World"
Not one of my favorites from Brown. Sure, it's super recognizable and all, and the strings are fun. But, gotta say, the lyrics kind of bother me these days. Oh well!
Rocket From The Crypt, "Ciao Patsy"
I say this kind of thing a lot, but: I have GOT to listen to Rocket From the Crypt more often. I fell out of the habit, and that was a mistake. Tomorrow is going to be an RFTC day!
