Shane Eli ft. Playboy Tre & Rittz - Let’s Ride

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

Good things may not always come to those who wait – if the damn thing wasn’t on track for release (knock on wood), I’d make a Detox joke here – but Booth favorite Shane Eli isn’t about to leave his loyal fans high and dry. Though his sophomore full-length has been pushed back, the freestyle series alum (and recent DJBoothTV interviewee) is back with a little something to tide listeners over till its imminent arrival. Making its world premiere in the Booth, Let’s Ride finds the multi-talented Cali repper deploying a sample that discerning ears may recognize from Dee-1‘s Jay, 50 and Weezy (though Eli personally assured me that he flipped it first). A funky loop drawn from Marlena Shaw’s Where Can I Go sets the mood for braggadociously freaky bars from the headliner and two ATL-based collaborators; Playboy Tre details some auto-erotic activity (and drops an eminently appropriate UGK reference) on the middle, and White Jesus emcee Rittz brings the joint to a strong finish with some characteristically blistering staccato flows. Eli’s Booth-sponsored I Can Do Better LP has yet to receive a drop date, but don’t touch that dial – fans can expect that to change very soon.
