A while ago I was introduced to Get Busy Committee
, a group consisting of underground hip-hop heavyweights Apathy, Ryu and producer Scoop Deville. They formed GBC for fun and as a departure from their usual respective styles and soon enough, had a legit project with a full debut album. The first song I heard of theirs was “My Little Razorblade” which has them rapping over The Knife’s hit “Heartbeats.” Shortly after, their album Uzi Does It
dropped and has since become one of my favorite albums of 2009. Featuring regular homages to the 80’s and 90’s with Fresh Prince of Bel-Air
samples, Cliff Huxtable references and witty lyrics boasting about their love for girls who emulate Vanity Six, Uzi Does It
is sure to entertain you with creatively hilarious lines such as the ones in my favorite track, “Stylish Clothes.”
Take you home to your mommy, watch how hard ya family trips
When they see I got you dressing like Vanity Six
A pair of pumps, not Vans four finger rings covering your hands
Makeup’s like you headbutted a box of crayons
It’s true love baby baby give me one more chance
Is that song about me??
They are also selling the album in a unique way: Uzi-shaped USB flash drives! Probably a good stocking stuffer!
