Micall Parknsun "Everyday" (Feat. Tiffany Paige)
The latest single to be taken from rapper Micall Parknsun's critically acclaimed album 'First Second Time Around', Everyday features sultry vocals from regular collaborator of Talib Kweli and DOOM. The M Phazes production is perfectly complimented by Parky's trademark stuttered slow-flow, smashing his powerful lyrics home. Producer extraordinaire LG provides a smashing remix, with a dominating bassline and dutty snares. The B-side, also taken from the album, Bang! features a classic verse from Jehst, and is dutifully refreshed with this remix from Chemo [Joe Budden / Kool G Rap].
Parknsun brings droves of passion in every word he speaks, but by no means is the album dark or introspective. Instead Parky has put a modern twist on the Golden Era rap format, drawing parallels with Detroits new breed of post-Dilla exports. This is unashamedly beat-driven, neck snap, boom bap party Hip Hop! While low-grade rappers jump from Grime to House, Parknsun keeps it real, resulting in exactly the type of classic Hip Hop album that for years people have been afraid to create. Parkys triumphant sophomore album bangs in the club, booms in the car and bumps in your headphones - and it blows all the trend-following flimsy urban music out of the water!
