This isn’t so out of the ordinary as far as Ghettotech goes, but almost every track from this guy seems to be based on a sample by a New Orleans rapper. I mean the vocals are in the same Detroit tradition and cars aren’t an uncommon theme, (see DJ Assault – My Caddy) but it’s surprisingly uncommon to come across “unoriginal” material in this environment. The music wasn’t birthed from a sample like Bmore, therefore has different responsibilities. There are even some DJs who frown upon this method, and while a lot of Ghetto House/Tech lyrics are written in less than 5 minutes, I’m partial to the raspiness of Slugo’s baritone, neighborhood kid choirs, and Assault’s lisp. I would rather get some Katey Red or Chev up on something like this, but Mannie Fresh works out out OK in the end.

I’m not morally against putting an mp3 up since I can’t find any legitimate places to buy this (released on Thorn Entertainment, a tiny subsidiary of the Twilight 76 web that exclusively put out AJ McGhee records), I just don’t have one.
