Styles P’s Fierce Flow & J Dilla’s Soultastic Beat Make A Musical Marriage (Audio)
In life, Styles P and J Dilla never got to work together. Presumably, the men respected each others’ work. Both artists enjoyed big trucks, all-natural mind elevation, and making that knock amidst music that makes you feel weightless.
In his weekly series, S.P. The Ghost has been going for some hard-to-reach sounds, ranging from Dr. Dre to Curtis Mayfield, to Marvin Gaye. Now, Holiday Styles goes to a deep J Dilla beat, from the Slum Village co-founder’s JayLib days. As he tends to do, the L.O.X. MC “turns it up to the red” on one of Jay Dee’s most timeless creations. In 90 seconds, Styles burns through the track, and makes another week ghostly.
