Shane Eli - Bo Jackson

Posted 5 years ago
Producer:
Shane Eli
Album:
I Can Do Better

Like Vincent Edward “BoJackson, who achieved All-Star status in both baseball and football, rapper-producer Shane Eli boasts the rare combo of versatility and outstanding talent – and, unlike the sports legend, who had to show off his dual talents on separate occasions, the L.A.-based rapper-producer is perfectly capable of doing it all, all at once. On the inaugural leak off his sophomore street release, making its Booth-exclusive world premiere in anticipation of Sunday’s big game, he does just that; over his own bass-bumping, synth-infused boardwork (complete with a hook sampled from the opening lines of Tribe Called Quest classic Scenario), the freestyle series alum drops verses as allusive and witty as they are swagger-drenched. He even manages to work in a reference to my favorite sports anecdote of all-time: “Dock Ellis, half baked, focused on home plate…” If this larger-than-life cut gets you properly hyped, then you can look forward to more where this came form on Eli’s DJ Skee-hosted, Booth-sponsored I Can Do Better street album, due out in March.
