Hot Sugar is mostly known for his production work with artists like The Roots, Chiddy Bang, Aaron Livingston and, most recently, Big Baby Gandhi. He’s also received attention for the savant-like skill and eccentricity he brings to his entirely individual brand of beatmaking. This is just another entry into solo Hot Sugar production canon that just goes to show that this guy can do it all. At the very least, he can do a lot. The free-wheeling, invitingly improvisational tone of “◕__ ◕” makes the case that he really doesn’t need a rapper to make entertaining music.
