New Music: Pacific Division, Let’s Go

01.15.09

Song: Let’s Go
Artist: Pacific Division
Album: Eighty81.com & Don Cannon Present: Cool Guys Always Finish First (mixtape)
Label: none
Producer: Don Cannon
Notes: none
Analysis: In my own personal opinion, Don Cannon has been the best producer on the scene in the last year or two, and he is continuing into ’09 on the right foot. The Cool Guys mixtape is going to feature an “ensemble of today’s coolest artists” such as Little Brother, Naledge, Curren$y and others, but this particular song is coming from the West Coast trio Pacific Division. If you aren’t familiar with PacDiv, you’re missing out on some of the nicest emcees on the circuit.  1/3 of the group, Like starts off over the piano & horns: (First off, know me as Like, homey is nice, I get my verse off / only precise, throw me a mic, I get my work off). But all three guys (Mibbs and Beyoung are the other two) will have you nodding your head to Cannon’s beat, sounding like a young, hungry De La Soul. I have a feeling this mixtape – if it features all Don Cannon production and talent as tight as PacDiv – is going to be better than most albums this year.
