I mean really, every producer searches the net for a good hour and a half a day for the perfect sample – in this case, Blade Browns producer found jackpot.
Upon the first listen of Blade Brown – Don’t You Ever Leave (Music video included below), I was instantly grabbed by soft french spoken vocals. Little did I know (after having daily discussions with my cousin whether it was a sample or not), it was Janet Jacksons vocals and I only found this out by having the song full blast in my room for 3 days straight – My dad coming into my room (presumably to tell me to turn the volume down) surprisingly screamed TUNE! Seriously, how many fathers listen to Blade Brown? Joke, he told me the sample is Janet Jackson – Funny How Time Flies (When You’re Having Fun), so I have to shout out my dad for that!
In my opinion, this song alone has set UK standards of music a bar higher. Blade Brown also being from South London (My home town) has set standards as the hardest (best) South London rapper with his slow story telling flow.
Line of the song – ‘And they asking, why they aint signed me. I keep telling them, I don’t rap like Tinie’.
In basic: Blade Browns flow and the production behind the instrumental go hand in hand like peanut butter and jelly. And salute to the producer, you have created a classic here. Its dope enough to get burned onto a CD in the car with my dad raping the repeat button.
