Rhymefest - Real Quotes

Posted 8 years ago
Tags: Rhymefest
Producer:
DJ Premier
Album:
El Che

Knowing that hip-hop needs a strong political revolutionary like Public Enemy or KRS-One, Chi-Town representa’ Rhymefest has named and themed his sophomore album after the famous Central American revolutionary, El Che.  On the new song, Real Quotes, Fest spends half of the track rapping about the problems that plague society (in particular widespread police brutality) by reminding the listener: “If you don’t stand for something you’ll fall for anything.”  DJ Premier does his part by mixing in Real Quotes from various significant figures including Malcolm X and Bill Cosby.  In an industry filled with flossing and pop talk, it is always refreshing to hear someone do something to help the community.
