Like that itch that you can’t scratch, DJ Infamous’ “Double Cup” bothered me. I thought I had heard the instrumental, but I couldn’t place it. Fortunately, Wikipedia – something that you should never, ever use as a source, so said my thesis advisor – gave me the information that I needed to crack the case, without the help of, say, Olivia Benson.
“Double Cup” sounds vaguely familiar because it’s the same beat as “Cup Up Top Down,” which was Kirko Bangz’ made me care about him again. Parts of the hook in “Double Cup” even sound familiar.
How could I not like KE On Tha Track’s monstrous, trunk rattling beat a second time around, with Juicy J, Jeezy, Ludacris, The Game, and Hitmaka no less? DJ Infamous wrangles in quite the crowd for “Double Cup,” and makes me forget that I already enjoyed it the first time around.
