This track—brought to my attention by rap blogger supreme Noz—is insane. Cut by the obscure Log Cabin Crew (Murs, Radioinactive, Eligh, Scarub, Tom Slick, and others), “The Day I Put on My Uniform” contains Salvia-saliva’d verses delivered with auctioneer-on-amphetamines rapidity over a leisurely bass line from Pharoah Sanders’ “The Creator Has a Master Plan” and piddling Jiffy Pop popcorn beats: very anticon.-ventional. The discrepancy between the rappers’ tempos and the rhythm is vast and the track shouldn’t work, but it does. I’ve listened to this six times today and am still not sick of it. Somebody do us all a solid and transcribe these mad lyrics.
