San Quinn & E-Klips

Contrast is always what makes these Bay Area one-off duo albums work. Quinn’s throaty crooning and SacTown’s E-Klips The Hustler’s slightly nasal effect work quite well side by side. The production is handled by E-Klips, who finds success in traditional g-funk influenced beats and gets stretched thin when he leans toward Rick Rock territory. San Quinn is obviously the superior rapper here (and everywhere else he goes), but E-Klips is at least decent enough to keep you from fast-forwarding to the next Quinn verse. Thankfully, unlike most of these projects, there isn’t an overwhelming number of guest appearances. It does get kind of annoying when E-Klips calls himself “The Hus” though… wishful thinking.
