Listen: Dr. Oop X Budamunk - "Black Love Oriented"

If there was ever a request for a defining example of "Grown Man Hip Hop", then Dr. Oop and Budamunk found the recipe. I have been a fan of Dr. Oop and his many incarnations since first hearing him on KanKick's first album back in 1999/2000 on a track called "The Finer Things"(which he revisits in a reggae style on this album). Dr. Oop is like a deeper thinking version of Devin The Dude, in that he talks often of getting high and his many life adventures that have resulted. He also balances that with heavy concern about healthy lifestyle, global politics and being honest with ones self, among other topics in his music.

Always laid back and sounding fresh over a jazzy soundtrack, provided here by Budamunk, they both serve up a chilled out, collaborative album for Japanese label JazzySport. It may not be for everyone, but this album is a perfect soundtrack to relax and zone out to, for me, and hopefully you too. Check out the sampler below and support quality music!
