Bo$quiat Clique – You Know Us [Audio]
Hamilton, ON – Bo$quiat Clique recently dropped their latest track “You Know Us,” which is set to appear on their forthcoming spring album entitled CliQo. Upon first listen to this this track – produced by B3auu- that dutifully nods to the golden era of ’70s funk, the wonderful sample of Kool & The Gang’s “Summer Madness” sets apart the Bo$quiat Clique’s sound from anything else coming out of the North.
In today’s continually shifting hip-hop scene, the laid back, De La Soul –reminiscent flow of “You Know Us” sounds as if it could be flowing from the mouths of one of New York’s many third-eye and ’90s-throw back obsessed rap troupes. Instead, the Bo$quiat Clique delivers a distinctly Canadian flow that hears them prepping us for what is sure to be an unforgettable summer to come. Check it out below.
Pushing lyrics like “Tasha, Debbie, Aaliyah/ I’m on stage and they all paid to see ya,” the Bo$quiat Clique members emblazon their rhymes with a fast-paced flow and funky beats that are sure to take hip-hop lovers back to the early days of Will Smith and Jazzy Jeff’s careers.
Their playful raps about women and haters have them sounding like members of the Native Tongues Posse, decades removed. With these groovy rhymes that glamourize the thrill of performing and the beauty of the female figure alike, the Bo$quiat Clique easily secure the title of some of the funkiest music producers coming out of Canada.
