jj have been big on the blogs for a while now with Pitchfork creaming over their unique brand of hazyÂ ScandinavianÂ hip-hopÂ re-workings. I’ve always found them intriguing bet never full enjoyable. Latest single “Let Them” instantly caught me as something with a bit more bite. The track is based on T.I.’s “Let Em Talk” but as you can hear, jj have stripped it bare and rebuilt it with just ice, fog, and mirrors. I love how the once biting rap lyrics are delivered in such a sultry way, slipping over the beat and turning the whole thing into something so new yet so familiarÂ .
BONUS: Here is one of jj’s jams from their debut LP from last year. Underneath the magic lotion there is a Lil Wayne song!
