Stu Bangas Will Slap You, and Your Mom.
Sometimes, you just need to sit down, put the headphones on, and zone the fuck out. I just did that, and I'm still doing it. In fact, I can't stop. I'm not zoning out as in falling asleep and shit, it's more like someone keeps slapping me upside the head so I will pay attention. When I was a kid, my Bishop taught me how to golf (yes, I just said "Bishop"), and he was brutal. Pulling my hair straight ahead of me so I wouldn't move when I swung the club, etc. Listening to this production is kind of like that. It demands my attention.
Recently, I was reminded how hard this shit is when I was finishing up my first listen of Ill Bill's The Grimy Awards. The album was just coming to an end, and then THIS hit me over the head like a shovel:
CLANG! Maybe some of ya'll haven't been knowing about Stu Bangas. To that I say SHAME ON YOU.
Go HERE and check out his latest release. Also, I'm not going to educate you too much about who he has worked with. I think it's more important that you discover that for yourselves. Just remember that name, and start paying attention. That's what a good lil' Hip Hop head would do.
Have you noticed I can't stop posting these Soundcloud widgets? Maybe you're even annoyed by it? Well, to that I say EAT A DICK. These beats are so good that it would be a damn shame if you didn't just click on over to Stu's SOUNDCLOUD and listen for a while. Then maybe you should BUY SOMETHING. Follow him on Twitter. I do, and that is not just a trivial thing. I actually don't follow a lot of people, and I tend to rotate. Watch an artist for a few days, get bored or worse: annoyed, then click that "unfollow" button and never look back. I've actually been following Mr. Bangas for quite a while, and I plan to continue. Smart, talented, and not full of himself like a lot of artists are. We also seem to share similar taste in movies, at least some of the time.
