Review by Steve 'Flash' Juon

Artist: DJ I-Dee f/ Jean Grae, Wrekonize
Title: The Right
Label: Adiar Cor Records

We previously noted on the RapReviews newsfeed this single may never see an official release due to an uncleared sample, even though Jean Grae and Wrekonize cameo on the track and a fly video has been shot for the song. Honestly I don't think the previous blurb did justice to the inustice of the situation.. There are not many producers OR DJ's out there today who are mixing Final Fantasy samples in their songs, and if Square Enix are not smart enough to realize this promotes their games AND they can get paid off it to boot well that's their fault. It's certainly not Jean Grae's fault, who describes herself as a "verbal masochist" while simultaneously seducing hip-hop in his essence and reality. It definitely isn't Wrek's fault, even though he outright says "f-f-f-FUCK radio play" in his opening verse. It's strictly a beautiful presentation, set off not only by dope samples but by I-Dee showing some MAD FLEX on the wheels of steel. There just aren't enough hip-hop singles with this kind of turntablism skill these days, so if you want your fix of the best rap song to sample from a video game Smif-N-Wessun became the Super Cocoa Brovaz, pray the sample is cleared before I-Dee's album drops later this month.
