Kurupt – ‘Yessir’ (?, 2008)
Shouts to PR forum head Whateva for the hook up.
That’s right, it’s another desperate attempt to get ‘current’. Thanks to my hard-working and internet savvy crew over at the Pete Rock forum I got my hands on this new joint that he’s just done with Dogg Pound MC Kurupt. Rumours are that there’s a full length album on its way which to my mind could turn out sounding nice (if a little strange), particularly if ‘Yessir’ is anything to go by.
I’m feelin’ the vibe here – much more so than the Vast Aire cut released a little earlier this year – with soulful vocals making way for jangling keys, trademark horns and subtle drums that keep the track moving. It’s interesting to hear the different aesthetics Rock is coming at us with this year, although if this pattern continues to repeat itself I predict an equal amount of gems and filler from Mt. Vernon’s finest in 2008. Not great percentages, but I’ll run with it: tell me what you think.
