My first exposure to Don was via his exemplary production on Ultramagnetic's underrated classic 'The Four Horsemen'.
Don's atmospheric, psychedelic boom bap was the perfect backdrop for Kool Keith and Ced Gee to drop their unique and dexterous brand of lyrical science over.
There are two things that set Godfather apart from most of his contemporaries.
First and foremost, Don uses a unique sound pallet. He cribs sounds from a far more diverse array of sources than your average producer. His beats have a very unique dark, psychedelic, and jazzy undercurrent.
This provides the perfect canvas for the Godfather to unleash his lyrically mastery. The man has a truly sick flow, he could destroy 95% of today's MC upon the mic.
Don goes off on the mic, with a delicious blend of word play, ill poetics, and dusty imagery that few can touch.
If for some reason you have slept on the great Godfather (many of you have), don't sleep any longer.
On a side note, I cannot believe that people are attempting to sell this CD for $160! If one were so inclined, they could find this album on good MP3 blogs (such as my own).
If you want to give this a listen, let me know (eyesandteeth at gmail)
I would recommend picking up this album at ANY cost. FYI: I never lie.
