In this fresh new in-studio performance, the gifted duo of Bobby J From Rockaway and Daru Jones deliver their stylish and unique homage to the classic Gang Starr track “Take It Personal,” from their classic LP, Daily Operation.
In addition to watching how the track was recorded in this new set of visuals, you can hear it for yourself on the duo’s collaborative album, One Mic & Drum. It’s a concept album of sorts that itself harks back to the origins of hip-hop, which consisted of two turntables (DJ) and a microphone (emcee). But instead of a DJ looping drum breaks, Daru actually plays them live on the drums while Bobby J flexes his verbal muscles on the mic.
Check out the visuals which were shot, directed, and edited by Bobby J at Pinch Recording in Long Island City. You can also take some time to watch the mini-documentary or their collaborative album, One Mic & Drum, here.
