Lil Goldie & Mobo Click
Brand New Funk
(199?, Mobo Joe) @ 320 kbps
Bounce Side, Hustler Side

Today's upping is more puzzle piece than full meal. Folk over at Louisiana Rap have been spreading Mobo Joe mp3s like a disease. Messy and deadly, but still much appreciated. Both the Lil Goldie full-length and Souljas of Sorrow's Buck 2 the Bang (the former straight and classic bounce, the latter some strange horror-bounce offshoot) are well worth the harddrive space and minimal mouse-click effort. Anyways, this Mobo Click tape rip is intended for filling in the cracks over there. Originally planned for a Take Fo vs. Mobo Joe C-90-sized mixtape, and though its still on the T&G to-do list I figured I'd best post something soon instead.

Such strange childish colored pencillings gracing both this and Lil Goldie's Act a Donkey and I haven't seen an opaque yellow cassette like this since I was a toddler listening to Mousercise on my Walkman Jr. No prison art on the front of any other Mobo Joe release I know of leading me to credit the amateur art to Goldie himself and I like that fantasy enough to stick with it like fact. I do love, however, the airbrushed world on the other Mobo Click joint.

But to get on to the real shit - on the Mobo hunt, pointed googling unearthed a beast that surely outshines the tape here offered. It's a vinyl rip of in house producer Death's banging full-length, Possessed by the Ouija Board - link still hot over at East ATL Theory. One of the first posts of a relatively new blog, but I didn't see much else there of this kind of thang.

Death produced half or so of Brand New Funk, but he's holding something back there that he lets fly free on his own tracks. Maybe its the freedom to venture past straight bounce boundaries or some deeper pact with darkness formed but this shit is fucked in the best way. It shares a lot with the aforementioned Buck 2 the Bang, but on Ouija Board he's further out on his own trip and his vocals go down a lot easier than the Souljas' strange, warbly affectation. I put sugar on your heart so it taste like a donut...
