Remember the hyped-up kid that traded rhymes with Large Pro on “Fakin’ The Funk”? Neek The Exotic got his first shot on MC Shan‘s “Don’t Call It A Comeback” / “Pee-Nile Reunion” single from the (never released) Hip Hop Roughneck album, as he went for his over a Large Pro/G Rap beat. Thanks to a handy accapella version, this verse also provided the choruses to half of Neek’s future songs – “Top Billin'” style – and introduced some classic Neek-ism’s such as “rip ’em flip ’em” and “backs ‘n necks”.
It’s hard to pin down what exactly sets this Wastelandz resident apart from the pack, but Neek’s combination of excitable semi-Shout rap delivery, unique timing and occasionally ignorant content over banging tracks is a good combination in any situation. His duet with Paul Sea over superb J-Love and co. production is also worth checking, not least of all to hear Large say “for real you know the deal this is unkut” and Neek to let us know that “me and rap stick together like hookers and patent leather”. “Exotic’s Raw” and “Rip ‘Em Flip ‘Em” are taken from his first solo single, which was the first in a series of indy vinyl drops he released with musical assists from Xtra-P and Yusef Lateef. More of these to follow in Part 2….
