Ok, so I just called my chiropractor for the first time since a bad kickball accident I had in ’05 (don’t ask). I told the good doc that I had listened to this new track called Breakin’ Dawn Boys from Fashawn and Brother Ali and uh…yeah it was a neck snapper. Bad jokes aside, it’s safe to say that pairing up the West Coast’s most Illmatic emcee with the monster from Minneapolis makes for a painfully good combo as the two wordsmiths commit lyrical homicide upon this easily flammable BK-One production. Going back and forth every few bars, Fashawn and Ali show why they each have their own respective buzz. Fashawn’s contribution is especially incendiary as he sparks off lines like, “It’s the worlds most innovative, west side infiltrated, independent kid awaited, give it up for Mr. Leyva.” If you’re loving this lively track, make sure to check out BK One, Brother Ali, and Fashawn in a city near you during their Breakin’ Dawn Boys Tour, which begins this week.
