You check out the latest track to drop from The Nuthouses (Dave Ghetto & Fel Sweetenberg). And when I say latest, for real I am talking this was just sent to me I have only had enough time to upload and release it to you first. Let us know what you think.
Well, we’ve been talking about it for a while now, leaking tracks and covering events all leading up to the release of “Camden High and Rising” from The Nuthouse. If you’re not familiar with who The Nuthouse is, then I invite you to use the search box and read our previous posts because I’m not going to re-visit at this juncture. I’m trying to get into the music.
If you’re over the age of 20 and have ever been into hip hop, more than likely De La Soul has a special place in your heart, I know they do in mine. I was mostly into punk rock growing up, but being that I skated I was also exposed to hip hop and was always listening to Gang Starr, De La, and the list goes on. As things have evolved over the years hip hop as lost some of the soul and smooth “flow”, if you will, that it used to have. This is not to say that there has not been good hip hop in recent years, just different hip hop. Well Dave Ghetto and Fel Sweetenberg feel the same way and have struck out to bring back that old school vibe that is missing, and they have come through strong on this one. Partnering with legendary producer Prince Paul they are bringing back classic De La Soul tracks, that Paul himself originally produced, and adding their own east coast flavor. It’s impossible to re-create a classic, however it is possible to pay homage to an inspiration for an entire generation of hip hop, and The Nuthouse has successfully done this with Camden High and Rising. On each track when the beat drops it instantly made me smile, thinking of the original De La songs, and seeing how they have spun it their own way. Instead of being left disappointed like hearing someone butcher a classic cover song, we were left appreciating the mix of old and new. The Nuthouse started with a classic foundation and built on it in a style a flow that they know and do well. Camden High and Rising is more than solid, and should make you thirsty for their untitled album that is in the works and will hopefully be coming out sooner rather than later.
