Roughly one million years after we broke the news, the next Spragga and Salaam Remi collaboration from the Shotta Culture project has leaked to the inna-net in the form of this video joint, also called “Shotta Culture.” Not one of the tunes I heard in Mr. Morgan’s office back in late ’09 but still a killer–Salaam seems to be back in fighting “Made You Look” form, flipping the crucial Albert King horns from Big Daddy Kane’s “Young, Gifted & Black” over some classic King Tubby-style drums, thoroughly drenched in spring-reverb. The video looks good too, though I haven’t seen a director’s credit so far. But we won’t really be ready to sound the big vuvuzelas until the official video for “More Life” drops. Watch for it–trust us!
