The final single fromDJ JS-1‘s full length project It Is What It Isn’t will have heads reaching for that replay button like no mans business. Pairing the legendary Master Blaster aka Tha Teacha KRS-One with the equally talented Torae on ‘Klick Clique’ brings the theme to full circle. The title should click as soon as you hit play and I guarantee its going to resonate till the end.
Last words: “It’s like first you don’t know then you do know ‘cos it clicks..”
There’s a reason why the teacher and student relationship has stood the test of time. It’s a bond that has been throughly documented in texts such as Robert Greene’s Mastery; fromThe Odyssey to The Karate Kid, this dynamic has become commonplace in all art forms. Naturally, it would not take long for this relationship to find it’s way into the world of Hip-Hop. Between Jay Z and Kanye West, Dr. Dre and Eminem, and Large Professor and Nas, it’s no surprise that this model breeds greatness.
While KRS-One and Torae don’t haven’t cemented that connection just yet, “Klick Clique” could be the start of something new. Linking the Teacha with Da Young Veteran, the track serves as a reminder that the underground sound is alive and well. As both emcees ride DJ JS-1’s supplied production; KRS with his consonance heavy bars and Torae with his lyrical gymnastics — “Klick Clique” is one of the many standout tracks on DJ JS-1’s latest compilation album, It Is What It Isn’t, which is out now on iTunes and all major digital retailers, and is available on CD through via Fat Beats and UGHH. Cop the project from The Rock Steady Crew triple threat, today!
