Flying Lotus ft. Captain Murphy & Snoop Dogg - "Dead Man's Tetris"
Flying Lotus got some extra special guest MCs for his latest album You're Dead! in the shape of Kendrick Lamar and the legendary Snoop Dogg. We've previously spoken about how brilliant the FlyLo/Kendrick collaboration is, and now You're Dead! is officially out, we can share our appreciation of "Dead Man's Tetris" too.
The beat is wonderfully weird, a mish-mash of see-sawing synth lines (which sound a lot like SBTRKT's "Wildfire" to me) and crunchy drums, not at all the kind of environment you'd expect to hear Snoop Dogg's laid-back flow. Then that recognizable drawl comes in, emerging from a mess of noise, and you realize Snoop can rap over absolutely anything and make it sound awesome.
Definitely wouldn't be mad at more collaborations between these two, but for the moment let's enjoy this track.—Constant Gardner
