Some people claim Deadringer, RJD2’s 2002 debut album as his best. Although Ghostwriter is one of his choice tracks and one of my personal favorites, I disagree. Clearly, Since We Last Spoke, his 2004 follow up is far superior. Since We Last Spoke introduced more complex beats and intricate, yet clever, samples into his repertoire. One only has to look at 1976, the premiere track off SWLS, to hear the subtle yearning of RJD2 to make every single person’s head on this earth bounce at once in an effort to throw off our planet’s axis.
It’s certainly possible with sampling master of his caliber, and now the UFC brass has finally realized what the director of The Reem and every cool person has known since the turn of the century: RJD2 is the [expletive] and there is nothing anyone can do to stop him. Check out the second totally awesome UFC promo in a row, thanks to RJD2 of course.
