Hip-hop production has undergone a transformation into a more electronic beats, electronic-click-drum-pad medium. Though, some like BADBADNOTGOOD have decided to go the other way with their hip-hop—regressing to the music’s jazzy roots. Tiger Speak on their self-titled debut have decided to do the same. Tiger Speak combines the jazz sensibilities of a coffee shop act and the lyricism of some forgotten Stones Throw artist. MC Ryan Easter intertwines Rudyard Kipling, John Belushi and Dr. Claw references to embody the group’s prowess. It’s oddly spit out at a speed to match their trumpet blasts. These Bostonian cats are pretty cool. Ya’ll should check ‘em out.
