Capeech - She's Gone

DJBooth_logo2x
  • Artist: Capeech
  • Track: She's Gone
  • Producer: Jimi Scratch
  • Album: Children of the Ghetto

Soft-rock icons Daryl Hall and John Oates may be about as far from “street” as you can get, but that hasn't stopped them from achieving a surprising level of popularity on the hip-hop scene – according to whosampled.org, they've provided the raw material for tracks by everyone from 2 Live Crew to B-Legit to Young Jeezy. On Capeech's Booth debut, the up-and-coming rapper and beatsmith Jimi Scratch add their names to the long list of artists and producers to draw inspiration from the late-70's/early-'80s icons, flipping the elaborately-coiffured twosome's She's Gone into a tuneful tribute to the music that's helped the T-Dot emcee and countless other Children of the Ghetto transcend the struggle and hardship of inner-city life: “It's the reason we eat / It's the reason we're here / We started with nothing, I made it somewhere.” If the artist's blend of nostalgia and lyrical grit doesn't move you, the smooth sax solo on the back end should do the trick. Capeech's forthcoming full-length isn't set to drop till this summer, but those digging this thoughtful track can rest assured that we in the Booth will bring you all the latest tunes.
