Yancey Boys – Quicksand f. Common & Dezi Paige (prod. J Dilla)

blame it on Shake August 27, 2013

Whenever Common’s vocals are featured over J Dilla production, great things happen. And with “Quicksand” the streak continues as the chemistry is as strong as ever. Batting lead-off on the new single from the Yancey Boys’ forthcoming Sunset Blvd. LP (Sept. 17), Common sets the tone, Frank Nitti delivers a solid effort and Illa J cleans up with an impressive “middle finger to the doubters” verse. Sprinkle in some soothing vocals from Dezi Paige and you’ve got yourself one helluva track. Click play and enjoy.

    @realtalk™ fuckin real talk, too many hip-hop fans caught up with gossip, that Control track was the hip-hop equivalent to those ‘Oh my god did you see her dress on the red carpet?!?’ type conversations
