When I awoke this morning I assumed it was 2013 but, after hearing the latest record from HD, I think we could be back in the ‘90s. (Though, if that’s the case, I am not sure what to make of my speedy Internet connection and iPhone.) Once the newcomer’s song starts, you are going to wish it Don’t Stop, because HD’s throwback sound (see also: Joey BadA$$, Bishop Nehru) is a breath of fresh air. At work under HD’s rhymes is producer Soulman Beats, who cooks up a smooth, jazzy instrumental that is about as fluid as the emcee’s style. Atop the beat, HD showcases a crisp, yet laid-back flow that makes his clever, dense bars hit even harder. Don’t Stop is the first single off the New York repper’s Stepping Into Tomorrow tape, which is set to drop next month.
