Wordsmith - Soul Baby Blues

Posted 7 years ago
Tags: Wordsmith
Producer:
Strada
Album:
Bridging the Gap

Where did Wordsmith‘s paycheck go? As the underground emcee explains on Soul Baby Blues, the latest single off his Chubb Rock-assisted Bridging the Gap LP, it’s a certain alluring female who’s responsible for the lightness of his pocketbook. Of course, when you’re getting the kind of “funkadelic love” he is, it’s hard to get bent out of shape about your financial situation. Beatsmith Strada backs the rapper’s love-drunk lyricism with a beat as groovy as the woman in question, grabbing a sample from ‘60s rock group Blood, Sweat & Tears’ verbosely-named classic, I Love You More Than You’ll Ever Know (too funny not to mention: the ‘68 single features the lyrics,”I can be anything that you demand/ I could be President of General Motors, baby,” That line hasn’t aged too well.). Fans can find this retro-informed love jam, along with previously-featured cuts Back In and Music for the Millennium, on BtG, available now from online retailers and set to hit record stores everywhere in mid-October.
