Okai Bout That

Produced by Ayatollah, Okai‘s single should remind hip-hop fans of Gang Starr, Mobb Deep, and Black Moon‘s gritty OG sound-a welcome change in this bling era. Why? ‘Cause it means Okai (who reps East Flatbush) has to be as dramatic and lyrical as Ayatollah‘s funky beat. No monotone flow and an 808 here, son. "Face Off" features Planet Asia who informs us that he‘s "comin‘ with force," which he does over a sample-filtered, low-slung groove.
