There are a lot of reasons why I want to dislike DJ Quik & Kurupt’s new single “The Demon’s Carol.” However, after setting aside my personal bias, what strikes me about this extremely violent single from BlaQKout 2 is the song achieves what it set out to do.
Dedicated to critics & enemies alike, the overall sentiment here is revenge, with well-spit messages of death to anyone who won’t coincide, over slow-rolling anthem-esque production from Quik. However, no matter how spot-on the delivery is here, there’s no denying 90% of their fans would rather hear something a little more light-hearted. Just sayin.’
Please Q, don’t murder me for wanting Rhythm-al-ism 2.
