"Never Understand"

In case you haven't been paying attention, New Jersey-based Clams Casino has quickly become one of the biggest producers in the indie-rap scene. Having produced for Lil B, A$AP Rocky, Soulja Boy, and yes even Mac Miller, Clammy Clams as he often calls himself has notched up a dizzying "cloud-rap" catalog. This "new" track from Squadda B, an early Casino partner-in-crime eschews that slowed-down "cloud-rap" sound for hypnotic mid-tempo movement. For his part, Squadda spits faster than usual over the pitter-patter drumbeat and muted horn bleats. Casino manages to tip his hat to Kanye West and the RZA, lacing the track with a chipmunk soul-sample. Casino and B may have notched up the RPMs, but the track still sounds like a slow-mo walk through a sunny day in the dream world.
