- Artist: Scolla
- Track: Stare
- Producer: Tecknowledgy [of The Xtraordinary Gentlemen]
- Album: Unreleased
Young Scolla seems to be in damn fine spirits these days; the Motown buzzmaker's last solo feature, Wonderful, was an ode to positivity in the face of adversity, and his recent guest verse on Aleon Craft's Brand New Day found him more grateful than ever for his successes. On this new, unreleased track, the erudite emcee continues in this uplifting vein, explaining that he's too busy enjoying himself to pay any attention to doubters who Stare his way. Over the breezy Chipmunk-soul production of Xtraordinary Gentlemen beatsmith Tecknowledgy, the emcee brushes the haters off in style, putting out enough positive vibes to make even the most jaded listeners feel warm and fuzzy. Wait, did I say “positive vibes? ” Because I meant “urine:” “You would swear that I peed in the pool / I'm just warmin' up what seems to be cool.” It's O.K, man, we all do it from time to time – I mean, I don't, but I know people who do... uh, anyway. If this outtake is any indication of what we'll hear on Tears & Triumphs, fans should be very excited; keep it locked for further details on the forthcoming project!
