MP3 of the Day: "Boom" by 2 Live Crew, featuring E-40
So, with Luke on reality TV and working on his own musical comeback, 2 Live Crew version 2.0 has been slowly crafting its own new album. Titled Just Wanna Be Heard, it's finally due out in the next couple of months as a joint venture between local companies Nu Focuz Entertainment and Lil' Joe Records Inc.
As a taster, the group's released a track from the record called "Boom."
This is some low-end-heavy stuff, but it definitely does not have an old-school booty sound. The track is slowwwwed down, with a little bit of a funky, Yay Area flavor added courtesy of a winding, funky beat, and a star featured turn by E-40. 2 Live Crew apparently didn't get (or more likely, don't care about) Jay-Z's memo about AutoTune, though, but the effect is used relatively sparingly here.
So, this new track: yes or no? Good comeback banger? Or just so-so? Listen to it below and weigh in.
