Unauthorized leaks are never not a drag for artists, but you know what’s even worse? Unauthorized leaks with embarrassingly poor sound quality. If you’ve heard this unreleased cut (and potential Streetlights inclusion) before, do your best to forget it, because what we have here is the bona fide, artist-approved real deal. Anyways, this record crosses the starting line with such energy that “You Know it’s something special.” from bar one. Dogg Pound emcee and former Death Row head honcho Kurupt launches into his opening verse without hesitation, and gives his take on the classic lyrical topics of riding, smoking, and lovemaking with fast-paced panache. You’d expect plenty of chemistry between a producer and emcee working on a collaborative LP, and that’s exactly what you get here—Terrace Martin proves perfectly in tune with his partner, delivering a breezily energetic percussion-driven beat with that unmistakable West Coast feel, and a catchy, funk-laced hook to boot. Streetlights hits stores this summer, and if you’re a fan of classic Cali hip-hop, You Know you’ll be picking up a copy.
