Serius Jones - Help (I Been Robbed)

Posted 7 years ago
Producer:
Needlz
Album:
Promo Single

For me, one of the biggest perks of writing about hip-hop on a day-to-day basis is that, in addition to hearing all the latest records, I get exposed to some of the greatest tunes of eras past through sampled beats.  Case in point: I didn’t know ‘70s soul group Honey Cone even existed till I heard Needlz sample their hit single Stick Up on Serius Jones’ newly-released promo single, but I’m definitely going to be checking them out.  In addition to the insanely catchy production, Help (I Been Robbed) boasts one clever lyrical concept; in two exuberant verses, Jones demolishes the tough-guy image cultivated by so many high-rolling rappers, shouting out all the artists whose much-touted street cred didn’t keep them from running to the police after a close encounter in the hood.  For those who prefer their hip-hop with plenty of energy and a dash of biting humor, Help (I Been Robbed) is sure to cement the currently-unsigned emcee as an artist to watch.
