Stimulus x Chris Dave – 3rd 1st Impression [Mixtape] | Free Download

A throwback to yesteryear of positive boom-bap Hip Hop is offered here in the form of the collaborative project by Chris ‘Daddy’ Dave and Stimulus. 3rd 1st Impression has a jazzy old-skool vibe with break beats and storytelling rap of not being a sucker MC. All instrumentation is supplied by Mos Def and Robert Glasper‘s drummer, Chris Dave, whilst lyrics are spat by the New York DJ and emcee Stimulus, who does a good job of truly taking it back to the essence. Bilal, Renee Neufville and Casey Benjamin are just some of the guests who lend their talents to the project.

Whilst a fun, enjoyable listen the mixtape is devoid of thought-provoking material and real lyricism. A good effort nonetheless; hip hop purists,  b-boys and b-girls will be happy with this one. “Morning Wood Interview” and “U Don’t Want It” are the most iPod worthy tracks.
