the unofficial tag-team is one of hip-hop’s quiet victories over other forms of music. while rock and jazz and r&b is often replete with dual acts like the singer and the drummer, or the keyboard player and the bassist, hip-hop tends to thrive on the power of the individual voice.
Audio Dope…this is Spitta Andretti over a Harry Fraud production reminding us that Jet Life is the best life. Such a vivid depiction over a simple soundscape makes it the most alluring lifestyle music in rap. Lay back with a cold one…or a lit one, and enjoy.
