Soundbites: Little Brother, Too Short, AZ

Little Brother - Step Off
I don't know what this is going to be on, but I remember Phonte mentioning on his blog that they're already working on the next album. "Step Off" sounds decent as an album track. The production is a bit sleazy, but Tay and Pooh's sharp lyrics are undeniable. It'll be interesting to see what direction they go with their next release, seeing as they've emptied the vault on The Listening and The Minstrel Show.

AZ - The Animal (produced by DJ Premier)
Anthony Cruz is nasty on this Premo beat. It also goes without saying that Premier has finally evolved, tossing out his signature drums and hi-hats for a thumping bassline and flourishing piano licks. That's what real kings do.

Bonus Cuts:
Jay Dee/J Dilla - Diamonds (from Shelved MCA Album) : Fuego!
Too Short ft. Snoop - Keep Bouncing: The ATCQ sample won me over.
Ras Kass - King of Tha West: No arguments there.
