Mr. Complex Calm Down
- Words: Big Ray
- Label: Raptivism
With guests like Dave One of De La Soul, Vast Aire, and production from DJ Spinna, this single has heat even before the record spins. Complex doesn't front on his name either, with dramatic vocal inflections, lyrics delivered in choppy half-stanzas, back-forth exchanges with Dave One on "Emotional"-you‘ll be shouting "illlllll!" Fans of Da Beatminerz and Pete Rock will rock to instrumental tracks-as clean, heavy, and stomping as a new pair of Tims. "Calm Down" is the highlight; lyrically its moody, guard-your-grill NYC realness. Bravo Complex.
