Los Angeles producer Deejay Victorious doesn't any stone unturned as he recruits a handful of hip-hop heavyweights on his debut single titled "Shotgun." Hip-hop heads would definitely revel at the thought of hearing legends such as El Da Sensei of The Artifacts fame kicking it with Brand Nubian's Sadat X, Boston's very own Edo G and LA underground vet Pawz One. Deejay Victorious and John Henry step up to bat on the production side of things with a smooth groovy horn-driven beat that hits a sunny nostalgic nerve and also exudes a vintage blaxploitation vibe.
The lyrical quartet each bring their unique style to the forefront from El Da Sensei's rumbunctious delivery, Pawz One's laid back demeanor, Edo G's commanding presence to Sadat X's precise offbeat flow to close up shop. Each verse is however threaded by a smooth chorus sung by a singer who helps add that needed sun-drenched flavor.
