The closing track to one of my favorite albums of all time, "For The World" is perfect wrap-up to Dyme Def's Space Music. Produced by Bean One, I have to hold this track right up there with "LetitBe" as one of the Seattle trio's best songs.
"Rebel 2 The Grain" is a pre-Space Music cut that even most DD fans haven't heard. It's similar in style to "The Game Needs Me," and "3BadBrothaaas" in that it samples the hook from a famous old school line (in this case, from Inspectah Deck's verse on Wu-Tang's "Da Mystery of Chessboxin'"). All three verses contain the swagger-filled, witty lyrics that are so abundant in the group's music.
I won't write much about 3BadBrothaaas other than to say that the 2008 mixtape is one of the best I've ever heard. I recently realized that working links for the tape are now hard to come by, so I figured I'd re-up it for those of you who missed out the first time around. It's an absolute essential for the music collections of hip hop heads everywhere.
