SMOKE DZA – "ERRTHANG VALID (REMIX)"

By: Ilana Rubin 

Every time I listen to a rap song that transports me somewhere I think of Will Smith. When I was seven years old Will put out Big Willie Style and that’s when I fell in love with hip hop. Sure, it was a different kind of rap but little ol’ me felt like she had entered an alternate universe so different from the one she was used to. In this universe I wasn’t white and Jewish and playing with Barbies all afternoon by myself. No, in this universe I was shaking my tuchus (that’s yiddish for butt) to beats that moved just a little too fast for my hips to keep up.

R.F.C. is a hip-hop collective that is made up of rap vets Al-Doe, Bluntsmoker, NymLo, producer 183rd, and spearheaded by underrated Smoke D.Z.A. Last week, the collective of champs released a remix of Errthang Valid featuring A$AP Rocky and Cam’ron. You could literally teach an entire four year high-school curriculum of hip-hop history with R.F.C., Killa Cam, and Flacko. That’s how much each of these rappers has contributed to and developed the infamous art form.

The remix of Errthang Valid (and it’s original) is similar to a lot of rap anthems that exemplify a common ‘we just wanna do what we want and be happy’ motto. It’s actually pretty quaint in it’s simplicity. It can be found on the group’s upcoming debut album, The Outsiders, out on November 18th. The album will also include features with other big names like Dame Dash, Taylor Gang, Styles P, Dom Kennedy, and others.

What makes this remix different is even with the upbeat almost electro track playing in the background the song is very much akin to Smoke’s natural rapping style; raw, hardcore, Harlem around the late 90’s, sound. I feel like he is especially someone who can blur the genre lines because his style is so reminiscent of what we now can deem “old school hip hop” that no matter what he experiments with it’ll still sound like DZA.

Nahmean?

You might not because sometimes I ramble. However, I do think it’s safe to say everyone listens to music with the hopes that they can feel that twinge of nostalgia, reminding them of the first time they heard music they really identified with. That’s right! Just like I was at age seven listening to Big Willie Style. See, it all comes full circle. Man, thank god for the internet* because you probably thought I had way more street cred but now I’m voluntarily re-revealing to you that I’m just a 20-something white/jewish girl with all dis knowledge.**

Just give it a listen for yourself, k?

*If you couldn’t tell by now, I have a pretty hardcore obsession with the Internet. It’s fascinating and damning.

**Just check the team page if you don’t believe meh.
