Review by Steve 'Flash' Juon

Artist: Nyce Da Future f/ Kool G. Rap
Title: Target Practice
Label: Shake 'Em Down Music

It's a bit of a mystery who produced this track, but as far as I can determine the song comes from a Whoo Kid mixtape called "38 in the Head." What IS clear is that the producer flipped Beethoven's 9th Symphony, which is a dope move for two reasons - no sample clearance, and properly looped strings really energize a track. The song was already off to a hot start when Kool G. Rap unexpectedly showed up to spit bars. Even though it's nice to hear the legend rapping about the "Symphony" days Da Future is the star here: "Still got a boulder on my shoulder, I'm tryin to yank it/'Til these bullets'll make dirt be your new blanket." Sure it's a prototypical gun-toting machismo rap, but at least Nyce is trying to get nice and inject a little humor and wit into it. I'm not mad at the track and I'm willing to check for a future single to see if he's still Nyce.
