[MP3] DAM FUNK has a tip for visiting the HOOD so you can PASS through INTACT

cause you never know when you gonna need to go back

♫ Dam-Funk – Hood Pass Intact (feat, MC Eiht)

Dam Funk’s largely instrumental (and large in size) double album, Toeachizown, garnered a ton of praise last year but the little I heard didn’t quire grab me and I never really tackled it. Well, now that Dam-Funk has thrown some vocals on a few of those tracks for his new EP my ears are perking right up. “Hood Pass Intact”‘s premise is about as awesome as it’s throwback 80s funk mega-handclap beat. Dam Funk’s high pitched soul provides a nice contrast to MC Eiht’s gravely flow. If this jam doesn’t make you want to cut the top off your car and put mega hydraulics in then you are lost, my friend. California love, baby. It’s nice to see a guy bringing back a genre and doing it with zero irony. (No surprise that Dam is on Stones Throw, the same label as Mayer Hawthorne)
