Song of the Day 3/17/09: Quite Nyce & Raydar Ellis - The Spirit
You can't say too much about something so fiercely basic as "The Spirit," so I won't. I'll say this: in the verses, Quite Nyce and Raydar Ellis are equally adept at dropping unexpected rhymes and switching their flow all over the place. The track shines in the liberal sampling, though, including this pointed sound byte that pulls the whole thing together: "The bottom line is that the government is getting what they have ordered / they do not want your children to be educated / they do not want you to think too much..." It all revolves around that core message, and I'll say, damn, these dudes are doing their share of thinking. Listen close and take what Quite Nyce and Raydar Ellis have to say to heart.
