Throwback: Gift of Gab - "The Ride Of Your Life"

Back when Gift of Gab's solo disc "4th Dimensional Rocketships Going Us" first dropped, I have to admit I was a bit skeptical of his musical choices without Chief Xcel, his primary beat partner in Blackalicious for years. However, as soon as I hit play and heard "The Ride of your Life", I knew it would be ok. It was the first time, at least that I remember, that I had heard a beat by Jake One and was so impressed at the production, I started checking for everything before and after. This track still holds up after all this time and sounds good on a cloudy Sunday.
