While most of you were giving flowers, cards, and candy to your mothers, master beatsmith !llmind took it a step further, bringing his mother a beat bouquet in the form of new single Mamma Said. When I talked to him in March for our Behind The Boards interview, he said that he had a few surprises in store for us. Well, I think sampling Michael Jackson and LL Cool J on the same track qualifies as a surprise. However, those samples are just the beginning of what this densely-packed record has to offer. !llmind mixes a plethora of effects and samples with a bass-heavy, cutting rhythm section to create a frenetic, yet hypnotizing beat that would trip up even the most adept of emcees. Mamma Said will (appropriately) appear on the producer’s forthcoming album, BoomTrap Volume 2.
