New Music: B-Real, Fire [ft. Damian Marley]

Song: Fire [ft. Damian Marley]
Artist: B-Real
Album: Smoke & Mirrors
Label: Duck Down Records
Producer: B-Real
Notes: none
Analysis: Smoke & Mirrors is the solo album 18 years in the making, from B-Real of the legendary Cypress Hill. Listening to this song, I kept wanting to compare B-Real to other rappers, but I had to keep stopping myself when i realized that he most likely influenced most of them. But if you were expecting this song to not be about weed, you’re loco. Subject matter aside, the guitar & whistle loops are infective and B-Real’s flow is as fresh as ever, even when he kicks a few bars in Spanish. I can’t help but imagine that this song would sound better on a thick-aired, sticky summer day instead of the dead middle of winter. But I’ll enjoy it however I can, and I look forward to the LP.

  1. […] Pimp My Ride. ‘Laugh Remix’ isn’t as exciting and different than ‘Fire‘ was, but it’s a perfectly acceptable trunk banger. Rating: 6.5 Source: Nah […]
