Maybe I’m tripping, but before B.o.B started spitting, the sampled vocals on “Throwback” sound like they could have been sampled straight from a Christmas carol. Which is fine, considering his Underground Luxury album will drop right in the middle of the holiday season on December 17th. Since this festive time of the year is slowly but surely becoming practically year-round anyway, it comes full circle knowing that we will surely hear the song at all times of the year, with David D’s favorite singer-turnt-rapper Chris Brown lending some bars. It all makes sense…at least in my head.
Because, apparently, the new thing to do is to have your album sampler on DatPiff, listen to Underground Luxury in its sampled entirety below. Gauging an album by snippets might be preemptive but the bits and pieces heard actually are pretty good.
