NEMS ft. VANGAURD & IRON SOLOMON – “I GET DOWN”
Coney Island’s own FYL Prezident, NEMS enlists EOW vets Iron Solomon and Vanguard (Svengali Bros.) for this sample off the album PRESIDENT’S DAY (available on iTunes NOW!!!), which has been getting a lot of burn in my iPod lately. Although I have had it over a month, I got busy working on the site and really didn’t give it the full attention it deserves for awhile. This video reminded me (isn’t that what videos are for?) to give it a full listen. First reaction? This is Hip Hop. This is Brooklyn. (With a little assistance from Manhattan and Jerzey). Something from this album will probably make its way onto Brooklyn’s Finest Vol. 2, currently in the making, if not some new sh*t from Nems Guttah, C.I.’s finest.
Video after the jump!
I love how the sample of the phrase “I get down…” appears in the chorus and the first 4 bars of each verse, but they don’t over use it. It doesn’t come in at every four. Just enough to leave you wanting to hear it again, until you finally forget about it because you are listening to the lyrics and it surprises you when it comes back in. Pretty dope, fellas.
Enjoy the video. Pick up the rest of the album.
