Strong Arm Steady "Get Started feat. Talib Kweli"
With the advent of ringtone rap and hip-hop singles that all sound alike, it is a pleasure to hear some heavy MCs spitting over beats that are more late '90s than late aughts. LA's Strong Arm Steady crew has been rolling together since 2003, and this longevity is evident on "Get Started," where the internal rhymes, political commentary, and clever roasts pop with unbridled energy. Having Talib on the piece only elevates it further, and with Madlib producing, the deal is sealed: "Get Started" is some tight hip-hop for those who are tired of the tacky electro-commercialism of what is played on most "urban" radio stations. From the upcoming Stoney Jackson album on Stones Throw, produced entirely by Madlib himself.
