SUNY REDD, DJ GOOD MONEY & 2520NYC.COM Present
'Fresh Out The Bakery'
(2520 New York)
My only experience of Suny Red’s music is from the contributions he has made on LATE’s mixtapes, but I remember from back in the day that the boy can spit. Okay fast forward to 2009 almost five years after the first time and I heard him, and here we are… a full length mixtape full of original tracks and freestyles. The boy is ill. I mean like he needs a doctor!!!! From the intro track you just know that this is going to be a super sick mixtape.
Spittin bars of fire, the mix gets underway with the first full length track ‘What Can I Do’ which samples the classic rare groove 70’s classic track by Sylvia Stripin to great effect. Then next up is ‘On My Grind’ which is a brilliant piano led groove that sees Suny Red spit that Flatbush, Brooklyn style superbly. This track really took me back to the days of Smif’n’Wesson, Bootcamp Click, M.O.P etc. and its such a classic track that really made me wake up and appreciate what was actually going on here! Next up was a freestyle over the classic Kayne ‘Down & Out’ track which again sees him flow with ease.
This release then goes on a more Southern influenced tip with the Chemical Beats produced ‘Get It’. Things roll well with tracks produced by GM Productions, Clams Casino and more from Chemical Beats, but on a level for me I just can’t stop jamming the ragga-tinged ‘Listen’. This track is so damn infectious for real and is something that really sums up Brooklyn’s love for all things reggae. Sha Stimuli pops up on ‘BK Stand Up’ rounding off this thirteen track CD well.
This is a serious CD and after listening to this I am just craving for more. I love that Flatbush Brooklyn dutty rude boy skank sound and this mixtape felt real. They say real recognize real, so if your real please recognize this. This is so damn f**king sik!!!
