Jay Z & Rick Ross Are Out To Move Mountains Over A Bass-Heavy Timbaland Beat (Audio)
As has become rather customary on Rawss albums, Jay Z is a guest (though only on the hook). Def Jam’s breakout artist of 2006 and (then) President Carter reunite again, with Timbaland behind the boards. “Movin’ Bass” speaks to D-boys and B-boys alike, as Rozay and Hova allude back to their hand-to-hand pasts, while embracing the metaphor of making trunk-rattling anthems for years. Of course with that title, Timbo cooks up a beat that really massages the speakers, and per usual, taps into his wheelhouse of Drum & Bass, and other EDM pockets to get a sound that simply cannot be duplicated.
Totally a different tempo and texture than “Devil Is A Lie,” “Movin’ Bass” shows that Ross and Jay have amassed nearly an album’s worth of material together in eight summers, with no stopping sight.
As a note, this joint hit the (air) waves of New York City simultaneously—in a rare move. This HOT 97 radio rip includes the usual Funkmaster Flex taggage.
