Rap Class - Greatest Hits

Posted by on Tue, Oct 23, 2012 at 11:22 AM

Portland culture don Kenny Fresh has been lowkey holding it down for a minute via his FRSH SLCTS label/blog—and randomly catching up on it, this new release from a PDX producer caught my eye, mostly because his name is Rap Class, and the j-card art has a charmingly 7th-grade pencil rendition of my favorite Big Daddy Kane photo. Turns out dude is part of the Dropping Gems collective that includes Seattle's DJAO and the 503's dope Natasha Kmeto—and this lively instrumental collection, cheekily titled Greatest Hits, is indeed good to the last drop, a charmingly low-rent hiphop whippet rush. I'm fuckin' with it tough, especially "John K" (I'd sorta like to imagine that the "K" is short for Kricfalusi) and it's repurposing of my favorite Slick Rick song.
