Album: Uptown Saturday Night

There are a number of rap tracks that get over with their instrumentals, while some find rappers who breathe life into the beats they’re given. The Ski-produced “Luchini” blessed Camp Lo just as much as they blessed the instrumental. The duo emerged onto the scene drenched in '70s apparel, paying homage to the blaxploitation era while running circles around the Dynasty loops. Similar to a slick-talking pimp, Sonny Cheeba and Geechi Suede had their own lingo and flowery delivery; it was hard to pick up what they were spitting over this triumphant track, but everything fit perfectly. Get rich to this. —khal
