When your influences include Jimi Hendrix, Santogold and Young Jeezy, it’s a safe bet that your sound will be plenty unique. Enter previously-featured emcee, Harlems Cash, who is handed a masterful cut from The Government, over which he makes one thing abundantly clear: I Wanna Rock. This brilliant blending of Hendrix’s Fire and 2 Live Crew’s Pop That Coochie sends listeners on a musical journey to Harlemwood. In this magical land where the grime of 125th meets the posh setting of Beverly Hills, HC’s energy and eclectic sound thrive. With lyrical deftness and a playfulness that is becoming the new “it” thing in rap, Harlems Cash is looking like a good buy in ’09.
