D. Black - The Return MP3


D. BLACK - THE RETURN [CLICK & LISTEN] PRODUCED BY JAKE ONE

Seattle emcee D. Black returns with the track "The Return" from his forthcoming album, Ali'Yah. Produced by the renowned Jake One, "The Return" is a proclamation of a track, announcing the impending, D. Black-assisted return of real hip-hop. D. Black also believes "The Return" is a more complex challenge, "There's a lot of boasting and glorifying negativity in rap these days. I kind of wanted to boast the positive things, the "sport" that life has to offer. I think that even in a song like 'The Return', where I challenge others to reassess their rap content, it also challenges the listener to think about the trashy music they're listening to. The goal is to make it hurt you deep if your on the wrong side of the sword." A hybrid of hip-hop styles backs up D. Black's argument, as Jake One mixes a ?uestlove-like ultra-laid back drumbeat, large string sections, fine guitar licks, and a little Jay-Z sample for added flavor. Be sure to check out "The Return" and the rest of Ali'Yah when it drops September 15th on Sportn' Life Records/MYX Music Label.
