DMX – Time To Get Paid.
Yes, that’s right. For all those 80′s babies out there, take a second to soak it in. DMX is trying to make his way back on the rap scene. (I know you just smiled a little bit Lisa.) For those of you who are unfamiliar with the Dog, he’s endured countless trials and tribulations, not knowing how to act in public, and an arrest record longer than most rappers since 2003… But recently he’s hooked back up with long time partner/producer Swizz Beatz to bring out “Time To Get Paid” among a few other tracks leaked on the web. The beat for “Time To Get Paid” features a classic B.I.G. sample, and some sultry organ work on the part of Swizzy. The beat itself is a bit different than I’m accustomed to hearing from Swizz, but it works well for the content of the song. There are a few moments in the track that kind of confuse me, like what seems like a bridge after a chorus that sounds like it was recorded over the phone, and the only version available is edited, so half the song is in audible, BUT, all that being said, I still think the song was well constructed, and it’s already on my iPhone for repeated listening.
