DJ Burn One’s work with iNDEED reminds me of Norman Whitfield and The Undisputed Truth. I wouldn’t take the comparison as far as labeling their work as ‘psychadelic country rap tunes’, its more like Burn One and his band use off kilter arrangements and production touches to experiment within the confines of an often formulaic subgenre, thereby tentatively expanding its boundaries. The result is country rap tempered with etherial, vaguely ‘jammy’ overtones that still mantains the harder edged core elements of its origins. Which is more or less what Whitfield and The Undisputed Truth did with soul during their time at Motown. See the two iNDEED features on the Joints mixtape for further evidence.
