Prodigy & DaVillins Have A Simple Message On A Dope Beat: Fall Back (Audio)

There’s something so right about the juxtaposition of gully rhymes paired with smooth, jazzy beats. On “FOH PT 2,” Sean Price protégés DaVillins enlist Prodigy to kick “rugged raps” about “pumpin’ packs” over a cool, laid-back upright bass line and dusty break-beat driven track. In doing so, MCs Rim and P give more literal meaning to the phrase “chillin’ like a villain.”

Although the Brownsville, Brooklyn lyricists spit some grimy bars, their delivery is clean and as relaxed as the production. Sean P’s influence on the artists is evident and, between their skillful flows and classic vibe, it’s not hard to imagine why he cosigned the duo. They even seem to share Ruck’s renowned sense of humor: “The message of the song is ‘fuck outta here’,” Rim tells Ambrosia For Heads with a laugh. “In the midst of New York memes and the chat of our out-dated style of making sense… This is still the mother ship and it all came from this out-dated style.”
