Remember the envy that you all had when you would see a friend with a holographic Charizard Pokemon card? Well I am making the bold prediction that it’ll be a similar envy of every MC who isn’t on a Good Shepard beat in the upcoming years. Bringing back the soul that we’ve almost forgotten after losing J Dilla and seeing the rise of trap and glitch electro in hip-hop beats that adequately suited the passion and lyricism of so many quality guys out there. Having said that, the tracks on this tape are amazing as stand alone tracks and the mere fact that Shep (The Good Shepard) put this tape together a little more than a week after I suggested it says great things about his ability (and back log). If you haven’t tried out your own stuff over one of his sounds check out “Woody Harrelson” from his group The Mind Ninjas. Stream and download HOLOGRAM CHARIZARD below. Enjoy.
Sidenote: I just noticed after writing this that in the download there’s a bunch of really awesome pictures that make it worth the effort.
Beer Recommendation: Would go well with a Red Stripe.
