DJ Babu ft. Trek Life - Non Fiction

Posted about 5 years ago
Featuring:
Producer:
DJ Babu
Album:
20/20 Music

If DJ Babu and Trek Life were books… well, I’d be really confused about how a couple bundles of paper and glue had managed to record music together. But, to roll with this completely absurd hypothetical a little longer, the Dilated Peoples DJ/producer and the West Coast rhymesayer would be shelved in the Non-Fiction section—they’re simply too real to fit in anywhere else. The eighth exclusive world premiere in DJBooth and Event Electonics’ ongoing 20/20 Music series, this gritty selection finds Babu crafting a slow-rolling synth-sample beat (complete with a hook sampled from U.T.F.O.‘s classic Leader of the Pack) to back Trek’s unfettered display of lyrical aggression: “Loadin’ up rhymes and start blastin’ / I spit with a passion, so my comparison to guns is more realistic than you imagine.” The end result is a hard-hitting, gimmick-free banger sure to impress anyone with a taste for that raw ish. Those who like what they’re hearing can keep it locked for further entries in the Event 20/20 Music Series throughout October and November, as well as heading over to Event’s official site for information on their new 20/20BAS Monitor Speakers.
