Big Boi feat Gucci Mane- "Shine Blockas"

Here is a new joint from one of my favorite rappers of all time off his (hopefully soon) to be released album "Sir Luscious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty." This song bumps, plain and simple. Though it is basically November, and I, as well as Mike I'm sure, are trying to establish our Best of 2009 lists, this song has definitely made its case to be on mine. Sampling Teddy Pendergrass' "I Miss You," (not the first Outkast shout-out to Mr. Pendergrass "...cooler than teddy pendergrass sippin a milkshake...) Big Boi kills this track, delivering his lines with the confident rapid fire delivery you would expect. And Gucci actually ADDS more to the track than detracts from it. His nye-understandable lines seem to work well in contrast with the classic R&B sample, and the tempo suits his rapping style. Just when you think hip-hop is dead (or dying) a song like this comes around and restores faith. Now we must simply wait for the whole album to drop.
