Scoop Deville - Poetic Justice (Instrumental)

Why do we like this?

Last October, when Kendrick Lamar's good kid, m.A.A.d city was released, I remember thinking that if only the album came out in February or March, it's most commercially-viable track would likely go from an obvious hit to a smash spring or summer anthem. I was obviously seriously underestimating the impact K.dot's opus would have.

It's now almost exactly five months after the LP's release, and "Poetic Justice" is just hitting #1 on National Urban Radio. Thanks in no small part to Scoop Deville's beat, it seems the song is going to become the spring/summer smash I predicted.

And it's in celebration of the track achieving the aforementioned commercial success that Scoopaloop takes to his SoundCloud (you should visit sometime, he's got heat!) to release the long-coveted instrumental version of the track. I mean, this just sounds like the blooming of spring. Scoop finesses Janet Jackson's "Anytime Anyplace" and doesn't chop it into obscurity, but instead merely re-arranges and bolsters it, taking it from 1993 to 2012. Janet's voice sounds smooth as silk over Scoop's kicks and claps, it's almost a song to itself MC-less.

Perfect for a lazy Sunday, preferably played in a slow-moving large-bodied American-made vehicle with a decent sound system, enjoy one of the best hip-hop songs to hit radio in a minute.
