Track Review: Sa-Ra ft. Talib Kweli - "Feel The Bass"
Via: Spine
Kanye West has learned much from Jay-Z in that he is very good at promoting himself. Sure, John Legend and Common get the G.O.O.D. leftovers, but everyone else is lucky to get table scraps from the Louis Vuitton Don. Case in point: Sa-Ra. They've been the victim of rule 4080 for the last three years as their much discussed deal with G.O.O.D. Music has produced a grand total of zero albums. Listening to "Feel The Bass," I dont quite understand why.
"Feel The Bass" is taken from their "prequel" on Babygrande Records entitled "The Hollywood Recordings." The beat is reminds me of another of their tracks "Star Warz" except that it sounds like it was remixed by Newcleus. High pitched, spacy keys, multi-part vocal harmonies, and an addictive bass kick set the table for a rejuvenated Talib Kweli to spit that hot fire (no Dylan). Kweli's effort here is as good as his work on RZA's "Certified Samurai" or the Liberation EP that he did with Madlib. He sounds focused and displays a lyrical dexterity that brings back memories of his Black Star days. So Kanye, stop admiring yourself in the mirror, take a cue from Babygrande, and put out Sa-Ra's got damn album already.

Track Review

Track is hot. Beat would sound great at a club and Kweli sounds nice over it. Not too into the chorus, but overall I'm feelin the track. Stop admiring yourself in the mirror!

Dave Park

This track is super weak. Kweli's first verse is recycled. I mean, at least he stole it from himself but still. I don't see what would make anyone excited about this group based off of this track. Kweli always spits fire but the production here makes him sound ice cold. The chorus is wack and so is that annoying ass high pitched sound that repeats itself ad nauseum like a Dr. Dre song mixed to Flaming Lips frequencies.

This track is super great. Kweli'''s first verse is refreshing. I see what would make someone excited about this group based off of this track. Kweli always spits fire and the production here makes him sound ice cold. The chorus is great and so is that high pitched sound that repeats itself like a Dr. Dre song mixed to Flaming Lips frequencies.

Dave Park

HAHA! but yeah, Sa-Ra is kind of a love em or hate em group. not much of a middle ground.

Adrian Covert

Well done, Dave. Except you're totally wrong. So not so well done! Haha.
