“Glad they didn’t have camera phones, when I was young, doing dumb sh*t”
When Apollo Brown’s warming beat starts and Ras Kass begins speaking about the view from his Watts porch, first reaction to the duo’s new single would be to think the lyrics are going to be throwback and easygoing. Instead, given the revered rapper’s troubled past, those irrevocable blips on the radar get recalled in detailed fashion on this deep cut. With assistance from Pharoahe Monch, the California native recalls everything from issues with alcoholism to broken hearts, offering a reflective perspective for anyone in need of a pick me up on a whim.
Keep an eye out for the producer/MC’s collaborative project Blasphemy, due this fall.
