It’s a safe bet that enlisting the laudable auditory talents of Flying Lotus will birth a flame throwing dragon of a single. On his latest track, “Keep It Going,” venerable underground rapper Blu does just that, matching Flying Lotus’ production wizardry to slay this beast. Set atop a hypnotizing, reverberating beat, Blu slings sedate bars with a drunken flow, almost mumbling, “ey yo, feet planted, eyes slanted/grand peripheral, extraordinary band of individuals.” And Wu-Tang veteran U-God provides the lazy hook, mixing muffled slurs with Fly Lo’s numbing, warped drum kits and errant scratches.
In under three minutes, this abstract trio manages to tame this slithery serpentine and unleashes its awesome power for every rabid beat-freak to behold.[audio:http://uproxx.files.wordpress.com/2010/11/keepitgoing_featugod.mp3|titles=_KeepItGoing_(featUGod)]
