Typical Cats Easy Cause It Is
- Words: Derek Grey
- Label: Galapagos 4
Oakland's Galapagos 4 imprint (put them on your "ones to watch in '05" list) has a new single from Typical Cats' second album release this year. And one listen to "Easy Cause It Is" illustrates how thoroughly this Chi-town MC trio (plus DJ Natural) lives hip-hop culture entirely. And if you do too, cop this. Conversely, The Odd Couple's (Louis Logic & Jay Love) "Wreckyalife" on Boston's Brick label is a like a throwback jersey on some cocky new school kids-it rocks a classic Chambers Bro's beat but the MCs brainlessly complain ad nauseum about the "slutty bitches" they've known. Dudes, shut up.
