Since we at MIMS are all giddy with excitement in anticipation of ROBERT GLASPER‘s new record coming out Blue Note Records very soon I thought I’d dig up this amazing project by my good friend DELA. It came in 2010 at a time when the game wasn’t flooded by these “beat tapes” concepts.
No disrespect to some cats but Dela is not your everyday producer, the guy has worked with Blu, Kweli, Large Pro, Les Nubians to name a few, the guy has paid his dues. There are different styles of producers but as I know Dela, he’s the kind of guy that will spend 3 days on finding the perfect snare. (And boy are they crisp!) So when he sat down and paid tribute to Robert Glasper, it’s not something he did in a half-assed way.
