Camp Lo – Luchini (AKA this is it)

I am always a little concerned that I am turning into cliche when I talk about my affection for hip hop music. I don’t advertise it too widely but ultimately I am unapologetic.

There are a couple of things in particular that appeal to me (along with several that don’t). The easy bravado that runs through a lot of tracks and the way it manifests itself through sometimes astonishingly vibrant language. This, along with the heavy sampling of and reference to soul music (my first musical love) make much of hip hop hard for me to resist.

This one displays both of these qualities in spades.
