The Up-Turn

@TheUpTurnMusic / tinyurl.com/upturnfbook

Kool A.D. of Das Racist just announced that after releasing his debut solo mixtape this year, he plans to release a solo album entitled 51″ and along with the announcement released this song, which is not to be confused with the Das Racist song of the same title.  Although Das Racist was formed and is based out of the east coast, Kool A.D. is originally from the bay area, and this track is an homage to that.  Enlisting some of the bay’s best current rappers, including Mondre M.A.N. of Main Attrakionz, Kool A.D. and co. go in over a classically Bay-sounding beat with a bass-line that would fit right in on a Too $hort song.  Kool A.D.’s mixtape, The Palm Wine Drinkard, was very abstract and avant-garde, so this seems to be a pretty steep turn in the other direction, which for some people may be a good thing.
