Scaling The Building – Ski Beatz f/ Curren$y & Wiz Khalifa

[audio:http://dreamlandapparel.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/12/07-Scaling-The-Building-featuring-C.mp3|titles=Scaling The Building (featuring C]

Being an ‘Old Head’ in a young man’s game I sometimes feel slightly disenfranchised with hip hop.  Being in my mid-30’s it often feels like the music has passed me by.

That said, I am pretty open-minded to talent and when I bought my copy of Skibeatz’ “24 Hour Hip-Hop School” I was blessed with some new nostalgia. Of all the songs on the album the track my ears remain addicted to is ‘Scaling The Building’ featuring Curren$y and Wiz Khalifa.  The perfect meld of old and new.

All new heads will love Wiz’ basic but no-nonsense lyrics to start things off.  Southern dynamo Curren$y murders the chorus and verse with his signature slurs, (showing us how far he has come from his No Limit days)!  And then there is Ski who’s sonics are invigorating; his heavily layered loop reminds me of a cold Friday night in the whip, (so cold you could see your own breath!).

I’d like to thank these three for helping an old-head feel relevant without having to “Turn my Swag On”!

    well put John. I also feel disconnected from what’s hot now a days, though sometimes I’m not sorry about it. it’s always a good feeling when a track comes along that both me and my 18 yr old brother can bop our heads’ to and this track is definitely one of them. thanks for sharing!

    This entire album is crazy – few can challenge the beatz that be ski. This is easily top 3 songs on 24hr Karate School in my books
