Wow, this post took some work. Not in the sense that it was hard to write or anything, but everytime I began writing it something came up that required me to close my computer or leave. Then to top it all off, last night when I was just about done writing it for the 5th time, my powere goes out! Wowzers. Nonetheless, here it is.
Wizdumb is just the type of producer I love to listen to. The kind that has me air-drumming along while freestyling at the same time. The kind of producer that I can listen to on repeat for hours. There are only a few producers I can really do that with, namely: Madlib, Black Spade, Q-Tip, 9Th Wonder. It’s no surprise that I hear some of the same elements of those producers in Wizdumb
This beat tape listens like Madlib beat tape the way that it kinda takes you on an entrancing journey through his crates of dusty breaks and eclectic samples. Though there are quite of few samples and breaks used on this tape that any DJ/producer/digger worth their weight in dust would notice right off the bat, this isn’t to be seen as a bad thing, in fact I believe that is somewhat the point. It, to me, shows his knowledge in his field of craft as a DJ/producer/someone who is really down with this hip hop shit.
A few of my favorites include: Damn Girl!, Play, Like Wow Man, and my personal favorite Know you, which can be heard in the following post.
