“Black Belt”

busy-signal-tic-toc-two

As I said in my Fader columnn Ghetto Palms back when “Black Belt” dropped: “Busy again sets the standard for matching lyrics and concepts in dancehall on this little-known gem, stuttering and chopping up syllables hibachi-styleโ€”โ€œBone crush out like a fockin hippopotamus / so we rise the sh-sh-shotty fussโ€โ€”over a minimal RZA meets Dave Kelly track made almost solely from kung fu sound effects.” Yeah, it’s like that.โ€”Eddie STATS Houghton
