Retch has already given us the "throw away joint" "Facts" today, but it seems like he's not done dropping off non-album material on this Saturday. Now, he gives us a freestyle over Jay Z's "So Ghetto."
Going over DJ Premier's choice beat, Retch opts for a more knotty, low-to-the-ground flow than Jay's on the original track. Taken from Vol. 3... Life And Times Of Shawn Carter, the track is one of the most underrated gems in the superstar's catalog, featuring a Preemo beat that also fails to get much recognition among another one of the most celebrated discographies in hip-hop. At least Retch saw fit to remix it.
Call in packs at the sound of the chirp
Smokin' dope while I'm baggin' the work
In the booth at the top of the staircase
Prolly gettin' top in the staircase
The fiends take a bump and can't stare straight
