At this point, I think Chali 2na has surpassed Q-Tip in his prime as the go-to cameo rapper. The former Jurassic 5 baritone – named one of the top 10 underrated rappers by Passion of the Weiss – shows up here with Aceyalone, who is set to release his new full-length Lightning Strikes (Decon) on Oct. 2.
Anyway, Eazy shows Aceyalone branching out into some dancehall-style grooves. And after listening to the new Kanye West album for the past five days, which I’ve quite enjoyed, it’s hard not to notice Acey’s superior flow. He has feel inside and out of a beat, and even on the unfamiliar terrain here produced by LA’s Bionik, Acey never stumbles or sounds lost.
