It’s time to feel the Phibes again. I mean the vibes. I mean the Phibes vibes…I mean…oh whatever – what’s important is the Falmouth brothers finally follow up Ghetto Beats Vol. 1 with – well – with Ghetto Beats Vol. 2. As before the pair nab classic funk and hip-hop and filter them through the ghetto funk prism to emerge on the other side drenched in wobble and heavyweight breaks. Gangstas N Honeys rewinds a bit of Nas and sets him rockin steady over some Aretha, Real Hip-Hop uses some classic Groovelvets horns and some classic Das EFX rhymes, Belong To You makes a weapon out of buzzsaw synths and finally Getting Funky Round Here gets jiggy with Will Smith and Black Nasty.
