MC Nas-D & DJ Freaky Fred
Bottom-heavy hotness from dynamic duo's 1992 album It's My Cadillac (Got That Bass). Over-the-top bass and dope 808 beats back Nas-D's smooth rhymes, which, while certainly party-oriented, are not nearly as repetitive as many of his one-trick-pony peers. DJ Freaky Fred lives up to his name, concocting high-quality tracks that sport classic Soul grooves and dizzyingly fresh scratching in addition to the thumping low-end. If you think all bass artists sound alike, check out these two for a refreshing blast of originality and skills.
