Asking a hip-hop fan to pick a favorite song from De La Soul is like asking a parent to pick their favorite child, it just cant be done. There are simply too many quality jams to select one as a favorite. Whether you are an Eye Know fan, or like me, you are partial to Me, Myself, and I, anyone can appreciate Charmingly Ghetto’s De La Soul tribute Black Elephant. This standout cut, direct off his brand new project, Kickz-N-Starez, plays host to Def Soul’s boardwork, in which he scrambles De La’s Stakes Is High record to be the base of his jazzy, yet slightly edgy concoction. Atop the beat, CG looks to impress Posdnuos and co. with a speedy, unremitting flow, which cuts right through the crisp production. Kickz-N-Starez is out now and available for free download via Audiomack.
