Thumbs up Re: Edan - Beauty and the Beat

Yeah, I've got them both. Primitive Plus is more straightforward and funnier, but B&tB is just amazing, far better IMO. 10/10.
His sampling is crazy.

its one of the most unique hip hop records i've ever heard, his whole way of combining raw old school flow with 60's samples makes it a great listen, i never get bored of it

the only album that really resembles this in any way is 1988 by Blueprint cause of the old school influence

both are classic
