Danger Mouse & Black Thought - Cheat Codes
Sep 22, 2022
76
Danger Mouse & Black Thought work together to release a throwback to older boom bap from better times, but some songs do a better job with that than others. Some samples work really, and amplify the song into being extremely memorable. The opposite happens often, however, and a lot of the lyrical prowess is lost because of the deafening garbage under it. Danger Mouse definitely made mistakes here and there, but overall did great here. My favourite part here was, oddly enough, the features. A lot of them match extremely well with Black Thought, and I might listen to some Run the Jewels sometime. Though I don't have any interest in MF DOOM, his posthumous feature is something I would see as sort of bittersweet, considering the inserted part wasn't his best unused work.
