DJ Rashad & DJ Manny feat. Brenmar "Stick Up"
This gem of late-night footwork comes courtesy of Brenmar, who was enlisted by two of Chicago's finest MPC experts, DJ Rashad and DJ Manny, to put together a song "dedicated to all those who have died for rocking the flyest kicks." In perhaps an unintentional twist of irony, anyone within earshot of this tune is bound to scuff up any sort of new footwear once the beat kicks in with its array of skittering hats, chopped chords, chirping melodies, and is that a reversed kick we hear tucked underneath there? After giving "Stick Up" a listen below, you can follow the jump to find a rather entertaining video of Rashad, Manny, and Brenmar working on this track and others in a bedroom while they smoke blunt after blunt.
