Peace world! Though 8th of Dope is happy to review full length albums and mixtapes, it’s not everyday we take the time to review a single. That alone should speak for the latest installment by 805 local, Rayce, entitled “Sanctuary”. Let me start by saying, if you love the classic Boom Bap sounds that won the world over in the 90’s, you do NOT want to sleep on this joint. From the head nod worthy vibe, fresh break beat, witty wordplay, and scratches provided by DJ Impact, this track is truly a trip back to the golden age of Hip Hop to say the least.
Coming out of Ventura County, home of Hip Hop legends such as Hip Hop trio Lootpack, Kankick, Oh No & countless others, you can hear the influences running deep in Rayce’s music. “Sanctuary” is no exception. This release is pure gold and the replay value is phenomenal. With an over-saturation of commercialized and “watered down” music today, it’s refreshing to see cats keeping the culture alive & staying grounded. Dude definitely has a FAT co-sign from www.8thofdope.com. “Sanctuary” is available on all major online stores such as Itunes, Googleplay, CDBaby, AmazonMp3, MyspaceMusic & Slacker Radio.
