MODULOK feat. HR: ‘Golden Rule’ video (2014)

Golden Rule Modulok HRCanadian rapper Modulok is named after a member of the Evil Horde from He-Man & The Masters Of The Universe. But don’t hold that against him – he’s got enough trouble on his hands on reggae hip-hop number Golden Rule – a track where he lyrically reveals that he hangs out with, “old dreads”. If a golden rule of collaborations is ‘don’t let yourself be upstaged by your guest’ our man might have cut things a bit fine by inviting Bad Brains‘ original vocalist (and old dread) HR along. I always preferred Bad Brains’ reggae cuts to the hardcore punk ones anyway and, beatwise, it’s certainly the reggae element rather than the hip-hop one that is firmly in the ascendant on this. Also, for all that this is Modulok’s track, HR’s ‘featured’ vocal commands equal billing. But then, he is a living legend. In fact, this is more or less what you’d expect an old Bad Brains reggae track to sound like with a guest rap vocal on it – not that I imagine Modulok will be displeased with that…
