If you’re craving some new tunes from a rapper who’s been around the block a few times, you’ve hit the jackpot. A “bad mother-shut your mouth!” by the name of Lucky Dice has stepped into the Booth to give us a lesson on what he calls Shafting. This album inclusion finds the 20-year hip-hop vet flowing over a beat borrowed from Isaac Hayes’ classic Shaft Theme (courtesy of producer Blaze P), waxing poetic about his two favorite pastimes: hustling and women. The B-more native’s “flashy, fresh and fly” rhymes may not break new lyrical ground, but his confidence on the mic can’t be denied, and the instrumental’s old-school vibe makes his stunting all the more infectious. Dice clearly isn’t just Blowing Smoke when he says he’s always on his grind. For more from this underground mainstay, check out his latest street album, available for purchase from his MySpace page. In addition, fans should watch out for his next project, Sound Scan, set to drop sometime in summer 2010.
