Beat wunderkind Paul White is moving beyond producing “just” excellent beats further into the realm of hip-hop. On his upcoming and aptly named Rapping with Paul White, the knob twiddler teams up with some of the top spitters in the game today, including Danny Brown, Guilty Simpson, Tranqill, Jehst, Homeboy Sandman, Marv Won, Moe Pope and folk-singer Nancy Elizabeth . Think i’m lying? Check out this ish then.
Those WeDidIt Collective boys seem to disappear for extended periods of time before returning and making up for their absence with glorious beat treasures. Case in point, the latest from D33J. i’ll let him tell you how it is (extra props for the Dos Equis Man reference):
“This tape was recorded in the now deceased ‘Traphouse”, where a gang of hooligans used to skate inside, make neon colored rice, screenprint weed leaf underwear, watch rivers edge on the bigscreen, get visits from the peoples champ on a regular basis, learn to tattoo, host swedish girls on vacation, and serve as a forum for pointless debates about which strain is better // among other things. These recordings are composed almost entirely live using my SP/DR 202’s, with some live remixes/looping and some drunken jams w/ my boy Shlohmo. I don’t usually record to tape, but when I do, I make sure im drunk. Thanks for listening.”
i’m usually not super big on posting remixes, but when you’ve got Shigeto remixing the Dennis Coffey track with Mayer Hawthorne on vocals, well, sometimes you’ve just got to do what you’ve got to do. And i’ve got to share this beast with you.
