Likwit Junkies One Day Away
- Words: Big Ray
- Label: ABB
Leave it to these fatalistic LA residents-from a land of freeway shootings and police brutality-to translate that city‘s tension into hip-hop. On "One Day Away" Defari and Beat Junkie Babu reflect on how daily encounters-from crime to God-are always close to transforming your life forever. I was surprised by the track‘s shuffling polyrhythmic beat-it‘s a shift for Babs, who I always considered more a disciple of Primo than Timba. But then things change, don‘t they?
