Meka’s Soul Mix EP: Redman’s “Tonight’s Da Night”

blame it on Meka August 15, 2008

Growing up in the West Coast, a cat like Redman would only get play during the random-ass mixes that would go down either at noon, 5pm of late at night. So hearing Reggie jump all over this track even to this day sends chills down my spine since. Good thing I have a Zune iPod now to bump his shit whenever I want. This Erick Sermon-produced heat rock still ranks among his finest works today, as he incorporates a variety of sample horns, loops, drums and vocals into one ridiculously dope song. Someone said it best last week: “The business of the sample clearance business has a lot to do with the decline of creative hip hop.” Sad, really.
