Camp Lo – Black Jesus (Prod. By Ski Beatz)

This is really good but I’m keeping cautious. Every Camp Lo album since Uptown Saturday Night has had at least 1-2 songs that were really good, but the rest didn’t live up to them. Maybe this one will be different.
 

Geechi Suede (of Camp Lo) – Ask About Me (prod. by Kid Icarus)

I still believe in Camp Lo. This song isn’t up to par with their best (very few things are), but it has Geechi Suede in fine enough form to reinforce my confidence. Lines like ‘I got Mona Lisa mirrors, Picasso paintings of pussy’ are vintage Lo-ah and the song is full of them. They may have some great music in them yet.

Camp Lo & Pete Rock – 80 Blocks From Tiffany’s Mixtape (Presented by Trackstar the DJ and DJ Mark Divita)

Excellent blend tape of well known and more obscure Camp Lo accapellas remixed with original production (they ungayed Lumdi!!!), made even more worthwhile by a smattering of some great new exclusive freestyles over classic Pete Rock tracks. The content is very solid, and it’s elevated by spot on execution – smooth mixing, impeccable progression, uniform tone kept throughout, very little DJ interference – this thing is put together damn well. Honestly, considering how in recent years Camp Lo have done better on random freestyles and features than on their own official albums, I’m wondering if some of the stuff here will actually surpass the album the mixtape is meant to promote.

Cradle Orchestra – Imported Nights ft. Camp Lo

I’m pretty sure this is the kind of music Jay-Z plays when it’s his turn to host the monthly Illuminati picnic.

Camp Lo – Coolie High (demo) / Bubblin (Anita demo)

I found these just casually cold lamping on a disc 2 of a random 2007(?) Best of Camp Lo compilation. That disc is kinda weird, I’m not sure how it qualifies as a ‘best of’ considering that many of the featured tracks are rather obscure. Anyway, the songs below are the standouts of the bunch.

Both of these show Lo at their ethereal best and by demo standards the sound quality is better than average. This particular version of Coolie High is actually the fourth ‘official’ permutation of the song (the others – 1, 2, 3), being fairly different from both the album version and the 2 remixes. I’m curious how much similar material Ski has laying around in the vaults, hopefully his recent resurgence will bring some of it to the surface. Uptown Saturday Night is due for a deluxe reissue treatment anyway.

Just for the hell of it, here’s the Camp Lo version of Feelin’ It. The story of how Jay Z ended up with this beat is now stuff of internet canon and the song has been around for a while, but I still never skip it when it randomly pops up on the ipod.
