Summary: This group is a real diamond in the rough. I love the music they make, not just this song.
About Artist:1982 is a two man MC Rapper duo out of the Boston area. The MC, Statik Selektah, has worked mainly on radio stations throughout his career and has the classic turntable sound I love exemplified by DJ Premier and Funkmaster Flex. Statik Selektah really brings the sound and vibe to the group, which is the main reason I like them, so I’d say he’s what really makes the group special. The rapper, Termanology, also from the Boston area, looked like he would take off in 2005 when The Source featured him as an unsigned MC; he never really took off but he’s got more than enough talent to hold his own in the game. Together they have one album titled
1982″ but have several other projects including their free mixtape 1982: The EP
About Song: this song is off their recent EP
the Evening News. I look forward to many more quality projects from them in the future. Also the track I believe samples Wu Tang Clan’s clssic C.R.E.A.M.
Favorite Part: I love the track especially with the scratches. The rap through the whole thing just has such a classic feel.
Favorite Line: “…I stole that line from Joey Crack cause I thought that flow was fat, what happened to rap I’m confused someonebring it back” (0:43) I like the rythem of that line and again with the old school classic feel
