This song is entitled “U Need 2 Stop ” and it is the very first single off of a compilation album called “The Classic Future”.
This new album will be the first release from DJ Revolution’s new label called ATW Recordings under the Sony Music Group umbrella.
Throughout the entire project, Revolution built tracks that paid homage to the sounds of his favorite producers. The guys he spent countless hours studying and spinning were his inspiration for the entire album.
Showing respect to the 90’s era legends by showcasing his appreciation of their contributions to the genera and culture was important to Rev. While creating his own twist on classic ideas and then lacing each individual track with some of today’s most fiercely talented new and undiscovered artists, he was able to achieve his vision. By pairing their voices with Rev’s original music, he has managed to both pay tribute and bring something new and refreshing at the same time!
Everything from the drums, to the cuts sound like it should have been released in the mid 90’s. “U Need 2 Stop” is the first track and it is fashioned after the one and only DJ Muggs and the people Muggs influenced once he captured “his sound.”
To put it simply…the song is vintage beat meets 2016 spitter! And Rev could not be more pleased with the outcome!
St. Basil, Headkrack and Mr Mecc are the first 3 ATW label emcee’s up to bat and they have set the bar extremely high for the ATW label as a whole with their witty lines and clever jabs at the Hip Hop of now. The quotables from the song alone will have listeners laughing for days. The dope wordplay from each spitter and the head nod inducing track brings that something special back to the genera. These guys actually have the whole package! Hip Hop is not just about amazing production!! It’s also about bars! So wack rappers beware…this trio is pulling Hip Hop cards in a real way!
