As far as I know, B L A C K I E usually makes music that’s far more abrasive and experimental than this song (possibly, I just haven’t heard the right things to compare it to). Moreover, the rest of the compilation where this song resides is dedicated to various forms of electronic music, with hardly any other overt rap elements. So how and why exactly this song sounds like a lost gem from an obscure tape made in Texas or Cali circa ’92 is anybody’s guess. I’m even wondering if this really is some old song that B L A C K I E remixed or re-made. Either way, I’m glad I found it.
