Scram Jones – Friday The 13th
The 914’s Scram Jones is one of the more talented producers in Hip-Hop, who rarely seems to get the name-brand recognition he deserves. Scram has worked with the likes of Mariah Carey, D-Block and Raekwon in crafting a New York sound that upholds the late ’80s-early ’90s tradition of mixtapes and production. When he steps into the booth, Jones is also deeply talented. I still remember his Michael Jackson tribute that landed him in The Source‘s “Unsigned Hype” column when that was the place-to-be. This one, loosely-inspired by the Horror franchise that also included young Kevin Bacon, Corey Feldman and other actors we tend to talk about at Trivia nights at Irish pubs. What’s better, Scram kicks that ill flow over Roy Ayer’s “We Live In Brooklyn, Baby” instrumental, a bit that’s spookier than some of those Jason Vorhees flicks.
