“It’s been a long time…” indeed! The multi-talented Kid Sublime is back! He is one producer of whom you ask “when is his next stuff coming!?”. For instance, the House Heads, the Soul Jocks and the Beat Nerds all seem to love him. Well, the Kid is now back with his sophomore effort, Rappin’ Blak.
This time he’s on a hip-hop tip. Maybe you’ve already heard or seen “Own World”, the first single, giving you a taste of where the album is coming from. However, besides hip-hop Rappin’ Blak has a definite soul influence.
Of course Rappin’ Blak wouldn’t be complete without some vocal support. Title track “Rappin’ Blak” features Camp Lo and is a true “club banger”. Some of you may recognize the beat, which circulated in instrumental form last year. Other features come from Illa J, going back to back with Kid on “We Don’t Play”, hip-hop legend Defari adds his sunny LA flavour on “Friend and Me” and on “S.C.R.E.A.M.” Frank N Dank bring you their brag ‘n’ boast style they’re famous for.
Though it’s filed under hip-hop, Rappin’ Blak has the sublime-ish soul signature Kid is known for. This especially shines through on “Pityful times”, “Never Satisfied” and “The Saturdaynightlivefreestyle” .
Check out Rappin’ Blak and let Kid Sublime take you on a trip through his own world. And don’t forget the nice present at the end…
Alex Robinson (Stones Throw Europe): YEAH! I like it, it’s a strong album. My favourite tracks are Hey Listen, Scream and Pityfull Times. Some great beats, he’s a sick producer. Good luck with it!
Tim Scott (Samurai FM): I checked out the video and I’m loving hearing Kid back in action… sounding a bit more focused and less blunted than in the past but still with ass kicking beats. This is high quality ish!
