Darkside Blues By LoDeck
LoDeck is a dude I’ve know for years who I’ve worked with more than I think people realize. Born in Russia, he came over the America shortly after the explosion in Chernobyl. I could be remembering wrong but I believe he told me he saw the smoke billowing as he was be driven away from where he lived. Real shit, bro.
Anyway, Deck has always been an under appreciated MC. I’d suggest you look into his shit if you haven’t heard it. His album’s “Bash It”, “Dream Dentistry” and “Postcards from the 3rd rock” are all dope and there are more whose names I’m forgetting that are also good. I swear, I think I have early Alzheimer’s.
I’m not sure what album this song is from but it’s a great introduction to him. It’s pretty much his “how I became the way I am” song. Considering Deck is a tad nutty, it explains a lot. I love that kinda shit. I also love the beat (Which I didn’t make) that flips a nice “Cry me a river” sample. Good shit.
