Hot Track: “Preservation”

I was first tipped off on this track by the fine people over at our Minnesota counterpart Culture Bully, and I couldn’t be thankful enough. As their article states, the beat from this Aesop Rock and Del the Funky Homosapian  collaboration is the foundation for the new Eminem track that’s recently leaked and been floating around the world of all things Marshall Mathers for a few weeks now. I’m not ready to give any new Eminem a listen to until it’s finished on the production line, so I’ll just get a quick word in on the beat instead. “Preservation” comes from some Wu-Tang material in 2005, but I’m just hearing it now for the first time. And if you’re in the same boat as I was and have enjoyed any past material from either of the artists you need to give this track a spin, I mean, it’s the only track that I’ve played in the last week from an artist without a fake name or mask (animal collective). The two collaborators work together perfectly and create a track that not only flows better vocally than 90% of rap out there, but the piano key sample in the background is absolute fire. Not much else to say about it, other than I highly suggest it for anybody interested in anything hip-hop. Until next time, enjoy!
