Certified Funkadelphia classic. That’s all I really need to say about this one. Beak Nasty lays a serious surge of modern into this throwback from Philadelphia hip-hop collective The Roots. The Minnesota producer gives the track a fully funky makeover, smoothing classically intelligent hip-hop vocals over a fresh new production. The remix also pays tribute to The Roots’ instrumental side. A hip-hop group in an era when beats were still made by bands, The Roots’ always paid heavy tribute to the musician’s hand- not just the lyrics. Beak Nasty keeps up a heavily organic sound, maintaining his funk through organic samples.
