Mystikal Is Back

Remember him? Mystikal exploded onto the scene in the early 00’s with such memorable hits as  “Danger (Been So Long)” and, of course, who could forget the Neptunes-produced hit “Shake Ya Ass”.  Well, Mystikal is back with a new song “Hit Me” and Pitchfork approves:

Over a prancing bassline, rattling drums and call-and-response horn stabs, he reanimates the spirit of James Brown, rapping, talking, zinging, and mocking across a livewire three-plus minutes. It ends with him and his sashaying backup singers chanting, “Say it proud/ I’m black and loud.” As vital it ever was.

Pulp co-signs that.
