Dela - What U Wanna ft. Blu

Download: Dela - What U Wanna ft. Blu

Off Dela's upcoming release, Translation Lost. These two have worked together before, most notable on the Mars(remix), a personal favourite of mine. With this track here however Dela's production is a little disappointing. There's a dope rift amongst that piano sample but instead of isolating and looping it some accessory notes were tacked on and the beat falls flat because of it. That atrocious vocal sample needs to go as well. Luckily Blu is fantastic and elevates what would be a fairly average track in the hands of another MC to something approaching great (depending on how bearable you find the production).

Rating: 7/10

  1. Yeah I agree 100% with you on that vocal sample. Like where does this thing come from? Completely ruins the vibe in my opinion.

  2. Love the vocal sample, love that the piano is simply looped.

    This is the definition of a hip hop beat in my opinion.
