Ampichino + Shoboat = Best Song of 2013 (so far)
HI HOW IS LIFE? HAVE YOU HEARD THIS SONG? IT IS HARD AS FUUUUUUCK.
As previously stated on this blog, Ampichino and Shoboat are an odd pair whose rap styles don't really mix, but they somehow manage to make it work once again here. Ampichino is the more substantial rapper of the two, while Shoboat has a more dynamic flow that has a palpable Southern vibe to it. Together Shoboat often outshines Amp with his more accessible style, but Ampichino working outside of his melancholy-Akron comfort zone is only making him a better rapper.
If someone were to ask me today "Hey Tomahawk (that's my cool nickname that people call me all the time (RE: once)), who is your favorite rapper out right now?" my answer would be a three-way tie between E-40, Rich the Factor, and Ampichino. Songs like this just further cement my belief that Ampichino is one of the best active rappers out right now.
I see people of the internet complaining about beats like this all the time, saying things like "oh this is just some generic trap shit that has been done a million times, I only enjoy complicated anti-melodic beats by El-P blah blah blah." Beats are not like reading academic books about the War of 1812 where you appreciate dense informative materials by old white people. Music is like a woman with big tits and a pretty face: nothing complicated, the beat is hard and that makes you hard...Wait I don't really know where I was going with this analogy, forget I said anything about erections and just remember that I like this song a lot.
According to the video this song is going to be on Da Krazies 2, which will be the sequel to Ampichino's *Just OK* album from 2010 that contained this super awesome song:
Really looking forward to hearing some more new Ampichino and Shoboat material this year!
What do you think of this song???
Should Shoboat just move to Atlanta already so that he can become famous???
Is Ampichino's music becoming less depressing????
