Grammy-nominated rap legend Slick Rick makes a special guest appearance on Miami emcee Dynas’ latest single, “Who U?,” whose video premiered today on Ambroisia4Heads.com. The whimsical, animated clip also features producer Tony Galvin, best known for his work with T.I., Young Jeezy and Snoop Dogg.
Ahead of today’s rollout, Dynas and Galvin released “What Up?,” a dedication to producer J. Dilla. The pair’s collaborative album, Big & Tall, releases next month on AVX Records.
"Who U?" is a mashup of boom-bap and dancehall, toasting to “Rick The Ruler” and Dynas’ Jamaican roots. Its rapped story fits perfectly within Rick’s canon of respected recordings. Beloved for his sense of humor and smooth lyrical flow, the hip-hop pioneer begins this tale at the gym “workin’ off the belly.” Trading conversational verses with Dynas, “rude-bwoy” hijinks ensues as an adventure-filled day progresses.
The last Slick Rick collabo was 2009's "Auditorium," from Mos Def's The Ecstatic album, dubbed "a hip-hop goodwill ambassador tour" by Pitchfork.com.
