Hola amigos, what’s good? I hope Benny don’t mind me posting on his blog, but… LOL. Anyways, I got introduced to Triple J a couple months ago, and definitely liked what I was hearing. When I got hit with a note about his newest project, an eight-week, eight-song extravaganza, titled Tequilla Mockingbird, I was eagerly anticipating the first chapter (as they’re calling it). You might have already seen this one out there on the innanets, as I’m slow posting this one – Santa been busy trying to make some ends, you know? – but if not, here’s what you’re missing:
Produced by Langesta (who also throws a guest verse), “Faded” fittingly samples “I’m Back For More” by Leo’s Sunshipp (which you mighta heard on that Johnson&Jonson “Wow” joint). It’s a sample that lends itself well to this upbeat party joint.
With shades of Quik’s “Tonite,” Triple J takes us with him on a Friday night bender. It’s a far turn from the hungry, almost inspirational, tone of Of Mics and Men, but sometimes you gotta take a break from the grind, no? Anyway, move your mouse down to the link below and download the first part of Tequilla Mockingbird – you don’t wanna be the one saying “wha happen?” when the second chapter drops do you?
