“Fux Witted” – Sahtyre ft. Alpha (prod. by Aspect 1)
I’ve encountered Sahtyre a few times in my blog travels (almost exclusively at IndieHipHop.net, if I’m not mistaken), but I’m posting this mostly to speak about the beat. It’s only a matter of time before we get a James Blake/Kanye collaboration, but until then Aspect 1’s Dilla-esque ambient slap on “Fux Witted” will have to suffice. I’m not even certain this is a new direction, but it sounds a bit more grounded than the airy based beats that Clams Casino slips to Lil B. It’s along the lines of some of the stuff G-Side is rapping over, but (since I’m guessing Aspect 1, like Sahtyre, is from LA) with a bit more of that LA Beats-scene swing.
All this nonsense must sound like code. In essence: Sahtyre is a technically proficient if unspectacular rapper rhyming over a fantastically layered, spacy production. More beats like this please.
