American Exchange

baby j

I've talked and talked in the past about Baby J's production credentials on this site since day one, and highlighted the modern UK classics he's already created with countless british emcees.

He has three solid producer albums under his belt, all of which have been well-recieved. He's helped Blade craft arguably one of his best albums a couple of years back in 'Guerilla Tactics' and he is about to unleash new material very soon. One thing Baby J doesn't get credited for is his work with US emcees.

Even on his debut album 'Birth' he had songs with Shabaam Sahdeeq of the late 90s indie label Rawkus fame. In fact, one of his best ever songs was with revolutionary, at times quite racist but always entertaining 'dead prez' on his song 'Scattered People'.

One US group that have been a permanent fixture on Baby J albums is the A-Alikes. They are a duo who are loosely affiliated with dead prez and Tahir (Hedrush) and they make some hard-hitting tracks. Whilst not the MOST talented duo, they certainly know their way around a hook and a beat. Also, with Baby J producing every track on this album, they couldn't really fail.

'Kill The Middleman' is a solid if not spectacular that showcases J as notjust a one trick pony. Although he does rely on soul samples a lot of the time, he has proved that he has other weapons in his arsenal.

Sounds good, I didn't know he'd done their whole album.

I wouldn't complain about the overuse of soul samples after hearing Baby Food... his departure from using sould samples makes it quite crap!

baby food was a big let down. he also made 10 beats on their 1st album
'live or die' check that out too

baby j is a joke.
using sped up soul samples so the singers sound like alvin and the chipmunks?
plus his pool of local "talent" doesnt truly represent Derbys mc's.
He needs to get a grip.
babyfood? more like dog food.
