westcoast hiphop // bounce turntablism
Labeling this track “underground hiphop” or “real hiphop”, although completely appropriate, would be misrepresentative in this case. “Count Your Blesings” is radio-friendly. It’s production’s polished. Its sound’s got bounce. And it doesn’t feel like most other on/under the radar hiphop because.. well, it’s pop hiphop
. Just a warning though, Emanon is a duo: MC Aloe Blacc
keeps the rhymes sounding real and musty, while DJ Exile
rolls out syncopated bassbeats that keep you shaking.Keepin’ it real an keepin’ it hot.
Emanon – Count Your Blessings
UPDATE: DJ Exile just dropped by tell us the original reggae track sampled is Sister Nancy’s “Bam Bam”. You’ve probably heard it in the stripclub scene in Belly. It’s available on this dancehall compilation.
