Larry Heard 'Em Say

Do my eardrums deceive me here or has Vic Mensa just made the first legitimately great 100% Hip-House song ever with Down On My Luck? *Kay Slay voice* ONLY A CHICAGO RAPPER COULDA DONE THIS, YO!

Vic Mensa - Down On My Luck
(From FakeShoreDrive; 2014)

You lads & lasses all pissed & moaned about the fake Chris Brown X real Chris Brown X DJ Mustard song but it may have accidentally beget a whole new era of non-shitty Hip-House redux to soundtrack the summer of 2014.

AYO! @ Down On My Luck being produced by someone called Stefan Ponce, tho. Never change, America, never change.

Better to be a ponce than a nonce, imo.

We're not calling "I'll House You" great? Or is it just being resented for the inevitable slip into 'ok but boring' that was the JBz in their final throes w/ all the Black Eyed Peas progenity?

Also, we're going to find out that Fast Eddie is secretly Chance's uncle, and the world's gonna collapse.

Doin' Our Own Dang (Do It To The JB's Mix) was the only good Jungle Brothers experiment with teh House muzik, imo.
