Late last week, MellowHype’s ‘MellowHype Week’ really kicked into overdrive as they let loose of several tracks. You can pick most of them up over at the Odd Future site, though the track here is arguably the highlight of the bunch.
Left Brain serves up a thumping production, stripping away his usual experimental touches for a thick percussion with chunky bass that pounds along at a slow pace. That simplicity gives the track a much wider appeal, not least because it takes Hodgy’s raps into a territory of hip-hop that’ll give him great exposure to the more ‘hardcore’ hip-hop heads. The rhymes are fairly solid throughout, and much like the percussion, they have a back-to-basics style that combines with the beat to create a track with plenty of replayability. Hopefully, there’s more of this to come.
