I’ve never had the patience to memorize whatever magical set of twists and turns solves the classic puzzle, but it’s clear from the behavior of Rubik’s Cube aficionados that the things are damned addictive – once it’s unscrambled, you just have to re-scramble it and solve it again. Perhaps that explains why Neako‘s decided to drop another iteration of his Rubix Cube: Blue Edition mixtape, complete with seven brand new tracks. Whatever the case, if Suicide (Remix) is any indication, the project will be one dope retread. Backed by the artist’s own gritty synth-bass boardwork and featuring guest bars from Inglewood favorite Shawn Chrystopher, DMV native Phil Adé, Trunk Muzik rapper Yelawolf, singer/emcee Smoke DZA and Booth newcomer Stalley, this revamp could hardly be said to have a weak link. If I were to pick a strong link, however, Yela would be it – just as he did on the most recent remix of Luda‘s How Low, the Alabama up-and-comer comes with enough furiously-flowed lyrical ammunition to blow a small army to pieces. Agree with my assessment? Disagree? Either way, those who like what they’re hearing will want to keep it locked for the latest on The Rubix Cube: Blue.5 Edition.
