I’ll let you in on a little background info about B-Easy. I’m not a weed smoker. Never have and probably never will. But that just goes to show you that you don’t have to be one to like Devin The Dude’s music. Not saying that all potheads like his music; I don’t think King Jerm is too fond of it.
Other than probably being one of the most underrated Hip-Hop artist, Devin The Dude has the kind of music that just makes you relax. Sometimes when life is crazy or your in the middle of a f@cked up work week, tracks like “Who’s That Man Momma” or “What A Job” can mellow you out a little and let you relax. What’s my favorite Devin track? “Doobie Ashtray” off Just Tryin’ Ta Live. Who knew that DJ Premier and Devin The Dude could make such great music together (Then again, both have strong Texas ties…). This track also makes Ludacris’ line on “MVP” a lie: “The first southern rapper on a Premo beat”. Naw Chris; beat you by six years.
Sidenote #1: I also included Devin’s new single off his upcoming album Room #420.
Sidenote #2: The fact that I haven’t made Just Tryin’ Ta Live a Classic Material is sad.
