Comment: This is sort of an odd choice for a single by Dudley Perkins. On the one hand, you can't go wrong with a beat by Madlib and this one is no exception. Though it's not the most innovative beat he has ever done, it's a definite example of Mad doing the type of production that he became famous for, and doing it very well--even adding an extra layer of pure funk to it. It doesn't push any boundaries, but it also is not lazy in the least. So often producers climb the ladder to that high level of beat-making elite, only to throw it in cruise control and spend more time being seen then making quality music. That is not who Madlib is and thank freaking God for that. As for the vocals, Dudley just doesn't do that much. At only 2:42 seconds long, you keep waiting for Perkins to get the verse going and it never really happens. Sometimes less is more, but in this case, less is just confusing. I dig Dudley's soul influences, but this one would be better served as an album track than a single. Pick this one up for the instrumental and let your MC friends do more with it than Perkins does. Don't worry though…mark my words, the LP this is off of is going to be tight!
