DJ JS-1 - Murder

DJ JS-1's latest release, a 21-track, 40-plus guest-featured onslaught of hip-hop, turns to a violent page for the track "Murder." Chino XL, Sean Price, and Killah Priest each lay down a verse over a beat that blends old school West Coast bumpin' with a new school dark consciousness. Even the rappers, in the midst of their own braggadocio rhymes, give it up for the ferocity with which JS creates this groove. Chino XL raps, "First of all if may / Explain the many ways JS will murder a DJ the way I murder wordplay / Hip-hop is dead, in a state of dismay / I desecrate you favorite emcee while JS digging in the crates." By this point, anyone can tell that JS-1 is killing it.
JS-1 had this to say about the track: "This was a beat I had recorded a demo track on with my friends, but I knew Chino would kill it! He did, and then I got Sean Price and Killah Priest next. We kill phonies with words and scratches, but judging by Chino's biceps, he might strangle a few people here and there too! I like that all of these emcees have been known for their 'I don't give a fuck, I'll say what I want to say' attitudes. I am kinda like that myself, and I can relate to that aggressive style. I'm quick to call out cornball djays, so I love a good braggadocios."
