Mod Sun - Chain Gang

Posted 4 years ago
Producer:
JCW & Dave Siegel
Album:
Blazed By The Bell

First things first, Mod Sun’s DJBooth debut feature Chain Gang is one of those songs that will send you scrambling to locate the sample (at least if you’re a rap nerd like me) so let’s get a little production breakdown out of the way. While Chain Gang is a soul standard that’s been covered by just about everyone, it’s most famous rendition comes from Sam Cooke, and while I can’t tell exactly what sample producers JCW & Dave Siegel flipped, that’s my best guess. Now that we’ve got that settled (kind of) we can move onto Bloomington, MN emcee Mod Sun. Impressively Mod doesn’t let the beat outshine him, delivering a rapid fire yet always clear anthem that’s equal parts aggression and inspiration. As the man himself says, “This is what it sounds like when you handcuff yourself to your work.” If Mod’s got you feeling ready to put your head down and keep working towards your dreams be sure to check out his punnily titled upcoming mixtape, Blazed By The Bell, due out September 22 via our friends at 2DopeBoyz.com.
