Why do we like this?
Not content with making dope rap beats that are equal parts Tom and Jerry, DJ Premier and DJ Screw, Samiyam adds the microphone to his arsenal. Wish You Were Here, his cassette and digital follow-up to 2010's Sam Baker's Album, features three tracks with Sam Baker bars.

My favorite is "Hummus" featuring Alchemist. The beat is an infectiously sweet and simple loop, almost a lullaby, and Sam drops some realness. He fluctuates between cartoon-esque imagery of billowing smoke and life advice like, "success takes time and it varies."

His invited guest, Alchemist, also holds it down for rapping producers with an array of quotable one-liners, like noting his "durag cape doubles as a slip-n-slide" and announcing he'll "rock a hat made from an actual bucket." The two share a chemistry (no pun intended) that makes for very enjoyable rap music.

Here's to hoping future Samiyam releases increase the raps to beats ratio.
