“There are verses from a bunch of perennially underappreciated types (Bun B, GZA, Black Milk) as well as from young risers (Wale, Kid Daytona, Big Sean), but most notable is how seamless the source material works as fodder for straightforward rap productions. Our favorite is “Lay It Down,” rebirthed by the Kickdrums into an ominous Houston-hip-hop slow-burner and perfectly utilized by Chicago M.C. GLC, who stretches the “Hey, shut the fuck up, boy” verve of the original chorus over two seriously mack-credential-boosting verses. ”
