In the month when I've already given thumbs up to 2 separate Caskey tracks, and Snow Tha Product's latest single is likely to appear in my month-end list, the song ya boy is most embarrassed to co-sign is SD's Circles. The quasi-Keef ‘cerebral palsy phase’
flow SD uses here is a current bête noire of mine, but this beat is simultaneously beautiful and grotesque: Here Comes The Bride wedding day piano juxtaposed with the type of bass that makes a house haunted, the type of bass that bloggers get lost in, the type of bass you fear when you're dead in a coffin.

SD - Circles
(From Truly Blessed album; 2014)


Does SD scrutinize the many possible ripples of a concept like Circles with the precision of those iconic opening credits of a certain 1980's Richard Briers sitcom? He has a pretty good go at it, yes. Official Martorialist rating: 4 dreadlocked Lupe Fiasco's out of 5.

Listened to the album after a lot of people talked it up and i was like HOLUPMAYN. I liked D.R.U.G.S. no relation and Clockwork too.

That scene really is one of the greatest.

Not listened to the album yet and not sure I want to since I can't believe he can top Circles.

d said...

Oh he def cant. Is annoying all these lifeless chicago 3rd stringers are poaching all the best beats.

Biggest waste of s beat in 2014 Chicago edition: Fashion by Katie Got Bandz & King Louie.

Incredible C-Sick production wasted on Katie phoning in a performance and Louie doing an absolutely painful Rae Sremmurd impersonation.

d said...

Very disappointed in general with Louie more or less abandoning his whole style this year.

Queezy said...

Song is bananas.

Blast said...

Anyone thinking that Louie is anything less than a monster needs to check out Tony. Ear for beats is amazing. His best material yet.

Louie is incredibly garbage this year, anyone holding onto disbelief otherwise is out of it.

I haven't taken to this SD album b/c I'm irritated that people are pretending he has the ability to make a project better than Keef. His whole existence, hell, he IS literally the Christian Slater to Keef's Jack.

Si Mane Price said...

Live And Die In Chicago makes up for the rest of Louie's post-2012 output, and Heathers is better than any movie Jack's ever made.

David said...

Crowley is like 18 degrees contrarian so far abstracted from the artifact he's evaluating that suddenly he's just constructing artist motivations wholesale & suddenly pretending he used to GAF about a rapper who he called the 'chicago hell rell' back before it was cool.

TONY > anything spaceghostpurrp has ever created

David said...

nb, i like the SD album, it's not a front to back masterpiece and obv not better than Keef's project, but he did a pretty good job w/ it, I bet marty would find a couple other tracks he fucks with on there between the molly love songs & such

russell bandz said...

Again / East side Shit / God / God and a King

Louie is as worth checking for as anybody else out there IMO, few rappers are capable of mustering more than a few sure shots per year anyway.

russell bandz said...

You're right about fashion though. C-sick is an amazing producer.

d said...

Tony had some good songs but hes rapping like other dudes do on them, inc Live & Die In Chicago.

d said...

Not entirely but he had a distinct flow at one point ygm, its just a shame.

David said...

i think you guys are tripping, tony is good front to back, flows are meant to travel, rap is cool

d said...

Its like that Cam song this year. its tradition for some flows to catch on but if youve a unique style/strong personality/influential/whatever & start doing it its disappointing is all, some people should lead. Louie obv did it miles better than Cam tbf.

Oh, B.O. said...

So Louie is signed to OVO now?

Potentially terrible news.

Si Mane Price said...

Oh great, so when We Like To Party finally gets its release it's probably gonna feature verses by The Canadian and his fat unfunny ginger mate.
