Ah...new rhyme spitter, huh? Thanks very much.
Jeremiah Jae hits us with his debut for Flying Lotus’s Brainfeeder label. Discovered by label mate Samiyam and pretty much worshipped by FlyLo himself, JJ’s unorthodox approach to both production and rhyme style are the stuff of label owners’ dreams and sound especially refreshing to the ear this morning.
‘Raw Money Raps’ is all over the place! The majority of it sounding like Madlib productions gone mentalola! There’s plenty of beatless, abstract stuff to get your teeth into plus there’s a fair quota of the usual (semi-mutated in this case) party jamz but it’s the murky middle ground that’s explored and exploited to a greater degree than on most hip-hop records. Some of this shit is totally far out! Not surprising considering the leaps being made in left-field circles of late but it’s always a treat to be genuinely blown away by something new and this record is chocker with treats.
The more coherent (let’s say easily digestible on first listen) jamz like ‘Guns Go Off’, ‘Cat Fight’ or ‘Money And Food’ throw a nod in the direction of Pete Rock, Madlib, DOOM and Bobby Digital (RZA) whilst dropping his own swag on matters. I especially like the echo-heavy cosmic cut of ‘Greetings (ft. Tre)’ with JJ’s rhyme style bringing to mind new talent Willie Evans Jr (a.k.a. Li’l DOOM....well, that’s what I call him anyway).
As with most hip-hop records, you get a hell of lot to chew through for your dollar with much of it needing repeat listens to really seep into the nugget. So, start your investigations and take a listen...definitely worth your time.
