Scram Jones Debuts ‘Diabolic’
Producer Scram Jones is a veteran beat maker who has blessed Raekwon, Styles P, Mariah Carey and Lloyd Banks with his signature boom-bap productions. Now the New York native comes through with a banger that will no doubt make your head nod. The sample-heavy ‘Diabolic’ boasts a diabolical beat (all puns intended) and Scram rapping crazy punchlines.
The first thing you’ll hear on the track is the numerous vocal soundbites from classic rap tracks by Run-DMC, N.O.R.E. and Biz Markie, among others. Then the thunderous beat crashes down over a flamenco guitar riff.
Scram is not the most lyrical, loquacious MC in the game, but he can drop hashtag raps better than your favorite rapper.
“Grinding till the day I reach the top slot / Till then, throwing stones at squares, hopscotch / I’m trying to get it cracklin’, pop rocks / And put holes in your feet / You don’t have to rock Crocs,” he raps.
‘Diabolic’ will appear on Scram Jones’ ghoulish project ‘Dead Giveaway,’ which drops on Halloween.
They don’t make beats like these anymore.
