In an era of spoilers, teasers, trailers and leaks, it is refreshing as hell when an artist can just drop a project out of the blue. Seriously. No fanfare or hoopla. I opened my email one day and sitting in front of me was a double LP worth of new instrumentals by the homies The Stuyvesants.
It had been a little over a year since they smacked us with their debut offering Brooklyn’s Finest, garnering them a gang of love and admiration worldwide. And with their newest effort, The Finer Things, the duo do what they do best — crafting soul-laden samples into hip-hop heaven. Great mood music for any occasion.
Some of you are probably dying to hear some quality bars over these beats, huh? Not a problem. Remember Naturel? The cat that set the summer off over a Stuyvesants track called “Stoops, Parks & Rooftops?” Well, he’s at it again and in very convincing fashion. The self-proclaimed (and fully approved) “third half of the Stuy” takes the first track off the second volume of The Finer Things, “Yearning (for Your Love)” and gets all superman lover on it.
