Hey, you. Have you picked up Soul Position’s new LP Things Go Better With RJ and Al? No? Come on, now. You’re only missing one of the hottest collaborations – between Blueprint, one of the tightest MCs out there, and RJD2, producer/DJ du jour.
I posted on Blueprint awhile back, and if you’re sleepin’ on RJ, well … sheeeeiiit. I’m here to help. RJD2, a sample-digging composer in the mold of DJ Shadow, already laid down the goodness on this year’s Magnificent City with Aceyalone.
Check this set from KEXP that aired Wednesday, and you’ll get a good taste of what Soul Position is about: good-time beats with rhymes that walk the line of humor and braggadocio. Who else is gonna drop a song about his cellphone minutes?
