What happens when perennially slept on globetrotting MC Azizi Gibson and equally slept on Dallas producer LDFD get together on a track? “The Jeffrey”. “Weird” rap is quite in vogue at the moment, especially in the City of Angels, what with everyone speculating on who Captain Murphy is, and Kendrick Lamar spitting like an alien on his first label single. The LA transplant Gibson might just be doing it better than anyone else though. “The Jeffrey” is an ode to everyone’s favorite narcotics potpourri, with Gibson chanting “I wish I could just say we smoke some marijuana”. LDFD comes through with a dense, but deceptively funky backing, like a West Coast version of Spaceghostpurrp. Stream “The Jeffrey” below.
Nice little mix from Dropping Gems representative LDFD in anticipation of his upcoming US mini-tour. LDFD falls on more hip hop/glitch oriented Dropping Gems artist scale and this mix features a hard hitting combination of originals and recent contemporary tracks from A$AP Rocky, Young Jeezy and indomitable Riff Raff. Stream/download below.
Update: LDFD is actually a member of Daedelus’s label, Magical Properties, not Dropping Gems
