Jake One: White Van Music
Buy! - (Rhymesayers)
Along with Bean One and Vitamin D, Jake One is one of the premier Seattle hip hop producers. His long list of production credits range from mainstream heavyweights to the Northwest underground, and he draws upon his many contacts to fill up the first album under his own name with a dream team of guest rappers including MF Doom, Brother Ali, Freeway, M.O.P. Casual, Young Buck, Ant, Busta Rhymes, Little Brother and De La Soul’s Posdnuos, along with Northwest up-and-comers like J. Pinder, Spaceman and D. Black. Even better, nearly all of them sound great here rapping over Jake One’s killer beats and smooth-but-deadly production. 9/11/2008 - Don Yates
