DJ Babu: “The Unexpected” (Featuring: MF Doom & Sean Price)

DJ Babu (of the Dilated Peoples) is releasing his new solo album Duck Season Vol. 3 on October 28th, and he was gracious enough to let us hear this masterpiece (featuring MF Doom and Sean Price) which is titled “The Unexpected”. I have to admit that I wasn’t really a big fan of Doom until recently (I haven’t heard anything that great since Madvillain or Danger Doom). He has been doing a lot of projects lately with some of my favorite producers (Dilla, Jake One, Babu), and I have been absolutely loving it. This track is one of them. There are two things that really make this track: 1.) Babu’s beat is absolutely intriguing, and has a great melody that you can just bob your head to. 2.) Doom and Sean Price compliment each other so well on this track. Sean Price has a line in this track that made me laugh out loud in the middle of a parking lot with my headphones on (I think that people thought I was crazy): “I always throw sixes, return a Ike Turner I always throw bitches”.

This track is really good, and as you can expect Babu’s work on the ones and twos is incredible. Duck Season Vol. 3 promises to be a great addition to the Hip-Hop albums already out this year. There’s nothing better to me, than to see a producer coming out from behind the boards (working on other people’s music) and doing something for themselves.

If you want to see what a real DJ/Producer can do, go out and get Duck Season Vol. 3 on October 28th. Until then listen to the track.
