#85/100 – RJD2 – Since We Last Spoke

One of a few happenstance purchases from Waterloo records in Austin one year, this sophomore effort from the then Definitive Jux artist is an interesting one. Recent podcast interviews with the Dad Bod Rap Pod and Can’t Knock the Shuffle have enlightened my understanding of RJD2’s origins and work quite a lot. This album remains pretty similar to Deadringer, and has a few notable tracks, but is a solid work of his.

I chose Side D and the track One Day because it just had that fly RJD2 groove where you know he was really on point with the samples and it just has all of the fingerprints of one of his tracks.
