Chicago VII – “Devil Sweet

Beatroot is coming and that means a new song to chop up. Last BR it was Tropea -“The Bratt. This time we taking it to the Windy! The home of Typical cats, Rubberroom, Common, and No I.D. For the knownotts, this track is to be used by all the BR finalists. Their task is to chop, loop, deconstruct this masterpiece of sound into their first beat for BR. The beat must be 2:00max and only use sounds, drums, etc from this ONE track! Honestly, its so easy this track got choke sounds, open drums, open bass, brass, etc.

Feel free to do a beat and i will post it up here with a little profile on you. Have fun and Beat that Root.

Came across this flyer…EVERYBODY KNOWS vs. RUGGED at GrindTime West Coast. Word rep the Island man. I wish it was all Freestyle these battles. They are super entertaining, witty, brilliant at times, and i would pay to watch it, but with no beat and everyone rapping the same cadence, using the same words, dog. Yo dog. F*uk dat. Dog. and its only obvious that its majority writtens. Dog. I could go on and on. Dog. F*uk dat. Dog. The one thing i know is EK freestyles like its writtens, reminisce of a one Omega 6. Go kill ’em i am predicting a win! Ruff – Ruff!

The guy on the left is EK opponent. Spock ’em out.

Triple A is a fresh name.  But these artists are more Major League.  For those that don’t know Woes was the Employee of the millisecond at Borders.  Nah, he and my homie Kawika was my caffeine providers.  So next time you robbin’ Borders by reading every mag and putting it back in the wrong place, spock out the Trip A’s.
