Louie here forever like syrup stains

It's taken half a decade, but one of the last unheard highlights from King Louie's secret Dope & Shrimp sampler has finally found its way onto t'internet at large: We Like To Party AKA the only song recorded during the 2011 Drill explosion to combine Top Billin' with La Di Da Di and still sound like Chicago's 'ardest shit since Bump J.

"Roll me up, shoot me up, I'm dope as f*ck"

King Louie - We Like To Party
(From what should have been the Dope & Shrimp mixtape; 2011)



I don't subscribe to the idea that everyone who writes about rap should know their 80's alphabets from the Awesome Foursome to the Z-3 MC's, but if you ain't down with songs like La Di Da Di and Top Billin' then you simply have shitty taste in music and your musings about what constitutes a bangeur are not to be trusted.

On the low Louie has recorded some of the best rap music of this decade. Hard to find a consistent project though, although perhaps someone - you or D Drake - will call bullshit on this but then I'll have something good to listen to!

Where does one starts with Bump J ?

Si Mane Price said...

Type Bump J into YouTube and click on the songs with the most intriguing titles (that's always my method.)

Consistent projects are for squares, Jack. Making your own playlists >>>>>>>>

So damn tough

TONY is a consistent project. It's also the one that seems to have had the longest life w/ chicago audiences & transcended them....I've heard BON remixes from Mozzy in Sac and dudes in Baltimore alike.

That said it isn't quite as diverse musically as his earlier stuff

and consistent projects are for squares

Jimmy Wopo did a BON remix too.

Actually listened to this now it's sehr dope. Synth reminds me of Monster which reminds me of pill monster Drum n Bass (Clipz hazard etc.)

Si Mane Price said...

I don't want no drum & bass comparisons in my comments.

David said...

tbh what this reminded me of the most was "i get money" by 50

Yohan said...

Do we have a mp3 of this track?

Si Mane Price said...

Don't think so.

Making your own playlists is definitely >>>>>>>>, but I can still listen to Louie's Showtime mixtape from front to back in 2016, which is something I can't really say about more than a handful of other datpiff-era mixtapes.
