Also impressive: local rapper Vic Spencer has already released a song built on a sample from the Goblin cut "Tron Cat." The track was actually released Friday, making this one of the quickest leak-to-beat-jacking turnarounds of all time. The idea of a rapper rapping over a beat from an album by another rapper that hasn't even been released yet is something that would take me a minute to explain to my ten-years-ago self if we ever met and had a conversation about rap music. (Which, now that I think about it, is something we'd almost definitely talk about. That and I'd share some strong words regarding future ex-girlfriends.)
Spencer's song, "Asshole," is after the jump.
So anyhow, the next time someone asks me what's so tough about covering popular hip-hop, I'll pull up this song and explain the story. Because seriously, good luck keeping up with this stuff.
