Choice Cuts: Tee Double

Introducing a periodic survey of what's tickling local musicians' ears, in their own words. Local rapper Tee Double, whose 12-inch split single "Feel the Vibe/Let It Go" was just picked up for national distribution by the Bay Area's TRC Distribution, shares his picks.

PRINCE, Musicology

It's pure music, spiritual and thought-provoking, with a touch of the Dirty Mind era. Very cool.

NAS, Illmatic

It reminds me of when hip-hop was about life, and not so much cars, girls, and jewelry.

N.E.R.D, Fly or Die

That cat Pharrell is on some real creative production tip. Wow!

PETE ROCK, Soul Survivors 2

Back to the early Pete Rock and C.L. Smooth times, with more focus on his beats and less on his rhyme skills. Good guest appearances. What a real compilation by a real DJ/producer sounds like – take note.

DR. DRE, Chronic 2001

Just the clarity as far as vocals and production on this classic banger. A producer's manual.

Tee Double appears with Stimulus/Response Thursdays at the Caucus Club.
