While almost all of us are enduring this plague in some capacity or another; here in the U.S., we’ve all but been left to handle it on our own. Despite all the shutdowns/ restrictions/ inevitable unemployment, & while simultaneously managing to bail out large corporations, pass a huge defense budget, & cut taxes for the wealthiest, we’re still waiting on a second stimulus check – & most of us really, really need it, so we can afford the healthcare needed for the vaccine!
But such is the modern standard; one would be hard-pressed to find another unfamiliar with the economic stresses of the moment. & Buu E. Radley, via his latest (& very aptly titled) single, ‘Get Money‘, eloquently expresses these broad spanning sentiments – the battle for the almighty dollar – detailing the struggles of the journey, & simultaneously, the constant positivity necessary to rise above/ shine through. This creation purposefully invigorates one’s self to recognize the issue at hand – & to handle said issue: ‘Get Money‘.
Featuring a stomping kick, & an exciting hard bop- esque jazz horn section, the groove is a head-nodder & a toe-tapper, for certain. & Buu E. Radley runs the beat like Tito Puente leading his orchestra: full of lively inflection & deliberate precision, which pulls the listener into the flow before they even realize what’s happened. Full of all the high top sneaker thump of an early 90’s gem, rather than sounding like a retrofied throwback, the broad spectrum emotions, subtle cadence, complex verbage, & jazz-tinged nuances prove it powerful & unique, even amongst an otherwise fantastic 2020 in hip hop.
