Comment: Writing a review for a deceased hip-hop icon such as Jay Dee is not an easy task. From before you even hear the track youíre already biased. Jay Dee, possibly the most prolific producer of his time, made this music and now he is gone and this music that Iím listening to right now is his remaining legacy. With all of this resting on my shoulders Iím supposed to write an honest, critical review completely devoid of outside influence? Yeah, right. If anything the track is vintage, if not classic, J Dilla in his more obscure vein. Dilla weaves a bouncy bass pop through a montage of incongruent sounds that include, but are not limited to a bent, octave-raised trumpet, an air raid siren, and an unintelligible rasta-voice. Madlibís tell-tale drone sounds right at home cruising over the top of the sonic mish-mash, his standard nonsensical lyrics nestled amongst the enjoyable discordant sounds. It isnít the best track J Dilla has ever put together, but with a daunting history like his, it doesnít really matter.
