Just in case anyone forgot about J Dilla’s last joint dropping in a few weeks, the latest offering should serve as a nice reminder. “Gangsta Boogie” is Dilla and Snoop over a Hi-Tek beat with Kokane on the hook and it’s perfect West Coast riding music.
“Welcome to the D where the concrete cracks from the weather
When it’s cold keep buying weed packed in the leather
Heat, hail, or sleet, it’s no sleeping
Stacking this cheddar P-I, macking forever
In the D strapped for whatever happens
Whatever cat rapping that bullcrap we pull that”
Yeah, Dilla was nice. Listen to the track, enjoy how Snoop bounces effortlessly over the landscape, and how Kokane provides the perfect cherry on top of a sundae that we should’ve gotten the chance to savor so many times in the past.
Pre-order The Diary on iTunes and you’ll get this track along with “The Introduction.” The Diary drops on April 15.
