Plenty of heavy-hitters (Snoop Dogg, Drake, Lil’ Wayne, KiD CuDi) newcomers (Donnis, Despot, Mr. Marcellus) and ghosts from Nark‘s past (Freeway, Kurupt, Raekwon, KRS One) make appearances on Nark Legacy.
A few observations:
A) I’m not sure why Snoop Dogg can’t consistently come up with bars like he does on “Gangsta’s Life”, but its good to see he’s working with talent like buzz-worthy West Coast-er Nipsey Hu$$le.
B) The only reason Birdman made the cut is the Drake feature. Feel free to fast forward that no talent clown on verse 2.
C) I’m a sucker for posse cuts (see “Passing Me By ’09” and “House of Flying Daggers”), and Eminem pretty much murders the competition on Drake’s single, “Forever”. We can only hope Relapse 2 will be more like this verse.
D) The KiD CuDi track is an unreleased demo not on the album. There are too many good songs on Man on the Moon: The End of Day, so just pick it up on 9/15.
E) Is it possible that J Dilla out-Wu’ed RZA? Check out “House of Flying Daggers” for a nostalgic trip back to the 36 Chambers. Only Built For Cuban Linx II drops today.
Also, check out the Tron Legacy-inspired artwork crafted by Mr. Logan Groulx. Be sure to comment/reply (here: http://wp.me/poWon-j6) if you like what you see. When you load the album in iTunes, the artwork should load as well.
