It’s been a minute since we previously heard from Brooklyn’s The Stuyvesants, who last year released their Remixes project and later got ripped off by Will Smith’s son, Jaden Smith. The duo has put all that behind them, though, and are back with a brand-new album loaded with soul samples, head-cracking drums, and pure boom-bap goodness. While I appreciate the futuristic, genre-bending, or otherworldly approach of their contemporaries, sometimes you just need some good ol’ sample-based instrumentals to get you through the day. And who knows, maybe the right MC will hear these and actually credit The Stuyvesants, perhaps giving them the proper break (no pun) they deserve. Snag the album below.
