"This Is It...WHAT!!!"

AND I'M BACK. So a lot has happenend since I posted my last enter-to-the-tree. I always stay current like events and up-to-the-date on my news. There has been a lot that has been preoccupied me over the past weeks, but now I can get back to doing what I love to do... I mean... BLOGGING ON TIME, yeah that's what I meant.

AN-AN-AN-AN-IEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE-(THE BAND)WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, let's get to the subject matter at hand. You know, I am not one who usually gets into new music, but lately I tried to look into some new joints that have dropped lately. I got to big ups Dart, of Poisonous Paragraphs, for the reviews he does of albums that leak, ummm I mean, DROP (in Pharcyde voice song). I've gone and checked out some of the albums he recommends and I have to say that he knows what he is talking about when it comes to this muisc stuff. I got into that new Wale mixtape, you know the one about nothing, and also some other items in the music universe. Yet, all of this has nothing to do with the subject of the post. Why did I type all of this then? Simple, Turn around slowly and CH-CH-BLAOW all in your face it was apart of my master plan to take pull a Brain's-answer's-to-pinky's-constant-question and you just fell victim. Okay, so if you read that last sentence and still don't know where I am going, don't worry, John Q is confounded for searching for his wallet in Kel Ferundo.

Alright, all April 1st aside, I really was listening to so good music that I found on the intranet, but there was one constant song I could not stop listening to. In fact, I played it so much, my brother, who usually does not get into what I vibe to, started to listen to it. Ladies(cause I love y'all so much) and Gentleman (big ups to my cats in the blogpsohere) allow me to introduce the one and only...CAMP LO.

Hold your applause and Hold your applause, and who the "F"is still clapping? Sorry for snapping-into-a-Slim-Jim like that.

So, by now, if you are deep into this blogging shi.., you know, and love, Camp Lowoah. That means I don't really have to get into thier story of how they work with one of the most underrated dudes in the producing scene or how deep they are into the whole 70's pop culture (read: Blaxploitation). So, this post will focus on the best song they ever made. Now, when I reveal what That song is, do not even try to post some arguement to dissade my opinion because you know ya playin yaself if you steps to me with an argument for a another song.

Camp Lo consists of Geechi Suede and Sonny Cheeba. They would come to be most well know for their best song, Luchini AKA This Is It. One word for this song: Incredible (like the Hulk if you want to get crazy like that). The back-and-forth rhyme structure of this song carries you throughout with a feeling of being in the flyest party with all the money in the world to spend. Now, these cats don't make it easy for the casual listener to decipher what they are saying but if you listen after a couple of spins, you will get what they dig on. Damnit, Just look at the song's title. *Sidnete: A weird thing about this and some of their other songs on the their debut album, Uptown Saturday Night (yes, based on the movie form the 70's (go figure)), is that seem indecisive about what to title some of their songs so is seems if they put one title to give the song some a proper title but they put on an "AKA" to say, YO, I know this song needs a title but lets flip an AKA to say that this is how the songs feels to us. Don't believe me or (the Hype), just listen to their songs on the album that have this and come back to John Q with an apology for questioning that cat's wisdom (I think it comes from tooth).

So, as I previously mentioned, the wordplay Sonny Cheeba and Geechi Suede have is at it's best and carries the listener through the song, but come on the main attraction of this song is the production. Those horns, I mean, those MF horns just come at you on this track. The amazing thing about this track is that it seems as if horns dominate the tracks as the drums just play Robin to the horns Dark Knight (check that movie out, it's going to be dope). Everyone knows Ski, Camp Lo's producer, as the cat who did Jay-Z's Dead Presidents beat, but this is favorite thing I heard him produce. I mean Ski's production on this track is unbelievable (Ready to Die, Track #16).

All of the elements on this song come together like voltron (yeah, I pulled that out a hat) to give the listener one of the best songs they will hear in rap game (yeah, I said it). In fact, Listening to this song on the album will let you know this is this pinnacle of the album. Knowing that I am posting the 12" of this song, let's get into the other items available on it. "Swing" is another song avaible on the 12" and is one of my favorite songs from them. Ish AKA Butterfly (from Digable Planets) comes and assist on Geechi Suede on a joint that makes you want to play stick-up kid (in a dream scenario, of course, remeber the lessons of THE WIRE (GOAT TV SHOW)). THe other song on the 12" is Cooooolie High (said Like the Female on the track). This is the other best song they have made. THis track is drenched in slickness (not a word, don't give a..). Cheeba and Suede come correct on this track and Ski delievers on another fanstatic producing task. This track is how you step to someone with game.

So, I guess that's it. The other items on the 12" are just instrumentals and a remix. I think from looking at this 12", you can come to the conclusion that this is best 12" released from Camp Lowoah. So, without further ado, here is the Camp Lo - Luchini Aka (This Is It) 12"
