Sound Table: Seven Reasons To Be Excited For OB4CLII

Raekwon & Elmo

[that pic cracks me up every time]

Raekwon’s Only Built 4 Cuban Linx 2XXL’s “6th most anticipated album of ’07,” will finally see the light of day this year. I’ve compared The Chef’s 4th solo LP to Dre’s Detox, both seeming to be industry myth’s recently.

However, as OB4CLII‘s release date of early August approaches, Rae has built the hype by dropping two dope mixtapes and several new songs.  Here’s seven tracks that will get you excited for the follow-up to his ’95 classic debut:

Beauty ft. Noreage & Joell Ortiz

Criminoloy 2 ft. Ghostface

Ill Figures ft. M.O.P. & Kool G. Rap [Clean]

New Wu ft. Ghostface & Method Man

Olympus

Wu-Tang Still Rhyming

Whips & Kicks ft. AZ

(Late Pass) Organized Noize Beat Drop

 Organized Noize

A lil’ while back, I got in touch with DJ01 and the good folks at Metal Lungies about contributing to their Beat Drop series where they gather writers, bloggers, producers and rappers together to focus on a specific producer or crew.

This time around the crew was ATL collective Organized Noize Productions, the Dungeon Family trio responsibile for the gritty instrumentation behind the best my favorite group OutKast’s early career and widely known for TLC’s “Waterfalls.” Sleepy Brown, Rico Wade, and Ray Murray crafted a majority of the spacious, trunk-knocking Southern-fried beats during ‘Kasts developing years plus various cuts for Goodie Mob, Witchdoctor and Sleepy Brown’s own LPs.

A sample of my work:

Download: Outkast – “So Fresh, So Clean” (off Stankonia, 2000)

Dom: One of the ATLiens’ instantly-recognizable singles, “So Fresh, So Clean” knocks right off the bat with its precisely syncopated drum programming. Then comes the good stuff, as the producers reinterpret soul singer Joe Simon’s “Before The Night Is Over” by bending a sweet synth around soft, melodic keys. The beauty here is the beat’s airy simplicity, evoking a feeling of clarity supported by Andre’s and Antwan’s refreshing verses (pun intended).

Check out the full Beat Drop here as we chop it up about how when noise is organized, it’s music to our ears.

Shouts to ML for the opportunity, Enjoy!
