Sunday Spin: ‘Bobo Meets Rhettmatic’ – The Mixtape

Peeped this mixtape this morning from the homie, Eric Bobo and his project with DJ Rhettmatic from the Beat Junkies crew – Bobo Meets Rhettmatic.

Bobo is a current member of Cypress Hill and has played with the Beastie Boys throughout the 90s (remember ‘Bobo on the Corner’ from “Ill Communication?)  He even released his solo album, “Meeting of the Minds” on Nacional Records in 2008.  If you’ve seen Cypress Hill live, you know that Bobo IS the live show, in my personal opinion – his percussive touch adds some Latin flavor to mix and sets the band apart from other hip hop groups live.  His dad, Willie Bobo, is much-lauded Latin jazz legend; Eric took over his dad’s Latin Jazz orchestra at 15 when Willie passed.

So this is my Sunday Spin – LISTEN HERE.  Listen to Bobo jam out on congas, tambores, timbales and all of that with Rhettmatic masterfully freakin’ the scratches & beat juggling over some tight tracks (my personal favorite, Gypsy Woman by Crystal Waters.)

Watch Bobo in action:
