Peter Gunnz


It seems distinctly possible E-40 might be running low on beats given that he's dropping 3 albums in 1 day later this year with the Block Brochure trilogy, so here's a suggestion from ya boy who thought the title track of Cousin Fik's first 'tape was superior to anything on his more celebrated second 'tape last year - get busy over the electronic version of Peter Gunn from the 1983 Bally Midway arcade version of Spy Hunter :



I got luh for the Mancini original and the subsequent covers by Elvis, the Blues Brothers and Art Of Noise & Duane Eddy but Knuck if You Buck to all my fellow 70s babies raised in the 80s who consider the Spy Hunter version as the definitive take on Peter Gunn due to a childhood misspent in seaside towns stealing money from slot machines in order to fund their addiction to the O.G cockpit arcade game.

Droop-E sampling the obvious melody for an E-40 & B-Legit sex-jam by the name of Thigh Hunter would be cool 'n' all, but '40 is a virtuoso performer who possesses a flow so acrobatic he can tackle production the average Rapper would run a mile from and so him weaving some sort of epic D-Boy narrative storytelling track about car chases on packed freeways, backstreet blowjobs from 'hoodrats and shoot-outs in motel rooms for cocaine with semi-automatic pistols entitled Pie Hunter over the winding terrain of the full 5 minute 34 second of it here would be the ideal scenario.

Yeah, that song (and game) was dope as hell. My arcade skills were weak, so I used to wait for someone else to play, pull up beside the cabinet and bug out.

Now I also have the sounds of Elevator Action in my head.

Not bad sounds to have floating around one's noggin'. I was pretty good at Elevator Action for a shorty.

Aaah i loved Spy Hunter on my ol' 48k (rubber keyboard). Chase HQ was my shit as well.

I like this idea and fully support it, although E-40 could rap over the easy listening/smooth jazz instrumental albums my grandma owns and I'd still bump it.
