JS-1 Calls On Aesop Rock, Others To Warn Subpar Spitters
DOWNLOAD: “Karma Killaz” feat. Aesop Rock, C Rayz Walz, & Vast Aire
The very instant you click the play button on your iPod, the purpose of DJ JS-1’s latest track, “Karma Killaz,” is readily evident. As stated by a mock-up voiceover, “This message is intended to make a person look objectively at himself, and the way in which he has been conducting his life.” Much like the rest of JS-1’s latest album, No Sell Out: Ground Original 2, “Karma Killaz” features a host of guest emcees, Vast Aire, C Rayz Walz, and Aesop Rock to be specific. In quintessential style, JS-1 makes use of old vinyl samples (these ones being especially eerie and smooth), stock battle sounds, and a downright dirty drumbeat. Each of the three guest rappers lays down a verse that forewarns phony emcees about their impending doom, “You can try to pretend / But eventually you will need to end / That’s how the Earth spins / And my next of kin will commit sin,” spits Vast Aire.
