Oil Money

December 6, 2010

Turn your focus to Freddie Gibbs’ “Oil Money,” which has already secured a prestigious spot in my top songs of the year list. The beat is simple, entrancing, and dirty as shit. The less is more minimalism gets run over by the all-star team of rap stars filling in the spaces. Bun B, Chuck Inglish, and the track’s leader Freddie Gibbs glide effortlessly into the incredibly smooth chorus that separates their verses. Reminiscent of the communal circle-rap of Souls of Mischief’s “93 til”, “Oil Money” might just earn that classic status.
