Boston legend Edo G joins his young apprentices G.Dot & Born in recording a hauntingly ill dedication to Living Legend Pete Rock. Edo G and Pete of course created the "My Own Worst Enemy", the "Shed A Tear"/"Jus Listen" 12" and a couple of loose tracks togethher. To add even more authenticity to the cut, if you want to call it that, is that the trio alwso invites former InI members Grap Luva and Rob-O who of course worked extensively with Pete all the way back from the early '90s (and in the case of Grap, way, way earlier as they are of course cousins). To top it off, producer Confidence proves once again why he's a name to be reckoned with, building a beat that could've just as well comen out of Pete's own archive wih a piano driven theme,the longing sounds of a tenor saxophone fading in and out, and of course crisp clear but real hard drums. A well performed sick scratch hook separating the verses are the big red cherry on top. We are not even two weeks in into 2014 yet, but as of now this is most likely the best song I've heard so far,
As you can see by the cover this is actually lifted from a complet forthcoming album by G.Dot, Born, Edo and produced by Confidence. Word is, if i understand the e-mail drop rightly, G.Dot & Born wil handle about half of the tracks while Edo G will carry the rest - though there's three songs where Edo G appears on the half "not his". The album should be very dope, and is out on January 28 via Redline Music Distribution (click to pre-order).
