Got a lot of non-believers out there.
Despite the year-and-a-half-long campaign OutKast, and Andre 3000 in particular, have been running to let listeners know they're back with a vengeance, there are still those who remain oblivious.
So, here's some more new stank stank for the hard of hearing. Its titled "Royal Flush," featuring Raekwon.
It's an aptly-titled track considering it starts out with a flushing sound effect. The song's hook speaks volumes with an Isley Bros. "Atlantis" sample featuring a pre-"Mr. Big" Ronald Isley singing, "I'll always, come back to you." Meanwhile the melodic bass loop drones on surrounded by hand claps and some eerie, swamp-like keys.
Usually, we refrain from posting links to downloadable material for legal reasons. But I think it's fine to link to Maurice Garland's Rezidue blog since he says the producer, Jeron Ward, sent the track directly to him. That's what you call "the hookup." Apparently, the track has already made it to Atlanta radio.
Despite all the attention Dre's been getting for his return to rap, Big Boi has been consistently killing the vocal booth, too. Hopefully his solo album, Sir Luscious Left Foot â from which "Royal Flush" seems to be connected â will finally earn him the credit he deserves.
Pay particular attention to his verse, especially when he says: "I laugh when you think that you have seen the last/It's only the beginning my nigga don't be so fast."
Of course, Dre's not to be slept on either: "Styles will change/They say change is dang-erous/As a King standing on a terrace/While his partners pointing up at the rifleman/Cowards shoot ya never know when your life will end."
Their show with Chris, Lord about 3 years at the Unicorn was the best.
I am a connoisseur of this real soul music like the comment above I'm glad…
You've got a few of my faves listed here, plus a bunch I've never heard…
This is such a cool idea and the performance is great (I've been twice) but…
Ugliest bunch of girls I've ever seen.
