BAY BRIDGES comp (ALL Droop-E production)
So, here it is, the new compilation from Sic Wid It records, "presented" by E-40, and featuring production from Droop-E on all 16 tracks. Its an interesting concept, but it just doesn't work. Droop-E's production is consistently elementary, with many tracks suffering from a serious lack of creativity, which gets really fucking repetitive. There ARE some slappers, but you've already heard them, notably: The Mossie - Get Ignant and E-40 - Da Dummy, which were previously posted up. Here are a few other choice cuts:
Tha Hoodstarz (feat. E-40 and Turf Talk) - Bullshit
Twiddly horn descends into slappin ass beat. Vocal sample prominently crushes into the drums, sounding like someone saying "bullshit" but compressed into more of a whoosh than a word. Synth brass comes in sounding like the doorbell of Dracula's castle. Vocal delivery is hard as fuck, but don't be fooled by the features, e-40 and turf talk are only on the chorus-- this is hoodstars' track.
Keak Da Sneak, PSD, and Mistah F.A.B. - Show Me the Deer Foot
Quite possibly the worst sexual allegory in a song title. I really like the beat on this one, its somehow downtempo but with bounce. No synth brass, and the whistle takes the backseat to clicks and pops and dings and hisses. I really think Droop-E should put more of a focus on making beats like this, as it allows him more room to experiment with.
Mistah F.A.B. (feat. (feat. Turf Talk, E-40, Droop-E, Keak Da Sneak, Mac Mall, B-Legit, G-Stack & The Jacka) - Super Sic Wit It (Remix)
This is NOT on the Bay Bridges compilation, but it is produced by Droop-E. This one's been on the radio too, it is, obviously, a remix of F.A.B.'s Super Sic Wid It, but featuring a whole bushel of bay area rap stars. Obviously, this knocks. The production is standard hyphy, but what keeps this from getting bogged down in repetition is the infectious chanting chorus and varied vocal delivery of F.A.B. et al.
Whew, i'm Droop-E'd out. More tracks coming real soon, from different producers.
