DB49, “Ready to Go” MP3

Although The Block Beataz made names for themselves by casting aside arbitrary musical boundaries and sampling whatever the hell sounded good to them, "Ready to Go"—co-produced by Arkitek—takes their sound to another level. Basically a supergroup of Huntsville dudes including G-Side's ST 2 Lettaz, Kristmas, Slash, G-Mane and Bentley, the song owes a lot to Pimp C's lush, organic production, and the chorus comes right out of the Nate Dogg/Warren G haunting croon playbook, but it is also an original and fresh piece of music in its own right. Check the way dudes basically finish each other's sentences. We talk a lot about how great it would be if people had fun rapping again, and this is a perfect example. Most notable though is the way it sounds like a legit posse cut, not something that was shepherded through Miami's waters on a boat sponsored by DJ Khaled and made possible by the ghost of Luda's dreads wild hair.
