Review by Steve 'Flash' Juon

Artist: Nutrageous f/ KL (Screwball)
Title: Wat's Poppin
Label: Poor Pocket Muzik

It's refreshing to play an unsolicited single and hear something unpretentious and toe-tapping for a change. Ron Mills' produced the track, DJ Premier mixed it, and Nutrageous rapped snaps to it with his friend KL for the hell of it. You're not left with the impression they were trying to hit a homerun out of the park right off the bat, but the simple and effectively orchestrated keys were a good lead off single. In verse two guest star KL hits a sac fly to advance the runner to second: "Whether drunk or sober, I still spit spiffy/Love a hot beat and hate a rapper that's iffy." Batting third you might be expecting a big clean up power hitter behind him, but Nutrageous still drives a double to left to score the run. "Laid back like Snoop's perm as I ride through the Eastside/Still with my middle finger, fuck a damn peace sign!" It's not mind-blowing to be sure but it's not mind-numbingly stupid either. Congratulations to Nut for calling up a Screwball pitch that wasn't wild and scoring with this single.
