Khrysis’ Rhythm Roulette Beats Are Soul Council Scorchers (Video)
Khrysis has been one of Hip-Hop’s most consistent producers of the last decade. The Durham, North Carolina representative, and one-half of The Away Team, has put in critical production work on albums such as Little Brother’s The Minstrel Show, KRS-One & Buckshot’s Survival Skills, and Rapsody’s The Idea Of Beautiful.
Mass Appeal’s Rhythm Roulette game is just that—a game. Producers go into nearby record stores, blindfolded, and grab three records in the literal dark. They take these finds, and make a beat. From Erick Sermon to Black Milk, Organized Noize to Mannie Fresh, many producers have attempted the game. Perhaps Khrysis makes the best results. In defense, the longtime Soul Council member grabs plates by Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings and Booker T. & The M.G.’s, but still… the longtime Jamla Records affiliate (with 9th Wonder standing by) makes joints that could easily be shopped around, and likely sold for some nice ends.
