JD Era – Rice In Chinatown (Prod. Fast Life) [Audio] #SOTD
Toronto, ON – Originally published Feb. 22, 2014 – For yesterday’s installation of #EraFriday, JD Era dropped a new track on us entitled “Rice In Chinatown” (off his forthcoming Barz: Volume 1 mixtape). While last week’s single release (“Love And Pain (Remix)“) was all heartfelt and affectionate, this week’s joint gets a little bit hungry. In fact, it’s downright gnarly. The track was produced by Fast Life Productions. “Rice In Chinatown” is HipHopCanada’s Song of the Day. Check it out below.
From what Era says on his first verse, he’s “Selling dreams/Like rice in Chinatown.” But from what I gather, it’s about much more than that. Mostly, that the rap scene is over-saturated. Like rice in Chinatown. But we also get some deep insight into the mind of JD Era. For example: If he were to bring back any dead rapper – surprise – he’d bring back Ol’ Dirty Bastard. And then he drops some really phallic puns on us. Like when he verses about receiving fellatio three times and calls it “tri-certatops.” Because, you know, “tri” is three.
