The latest sounds to be unleashed on us
from Virgin Records America is Guerrilla Black. Originally from Chi town,
but relocating to LA at an early age, Guerrilla has always known where he
was headed. Early on he was given a leg up by Ice
T, who he now looks up to and sees as a mentor. Now Guerrilla thoroughly represents for
South Central and Crenshaw in particular. He
currently has his Guerrilla City LP out in stores now and is about to drop
You're The One, the latest single which features hot artist Mario Winans,
who also produces and appears courtesy of Bad Boy Entertainment.
01. You're The One Clean
02. You're The One Instrumental
So here we potentially have the beginning of a summer vibe as the track
flexes an easy paced chilled out groove. A hand clap snare and a heavily
effected almost vocoder type melody bump along for Guerrilla to drop in his
understated style which is quite obviously an homage to big poppa. Even the
visual resemblance is there on the cover and in the video, it is something
he is aware of, but he states that he can only be himself. This track is a
love song in which Guerrilla eulogises about his girl and how he feels about
her with Mario's silky smooth vocals for the chorus.
By the third verse Guerrilla is asking her to make a decision as to who's
ride she is going to ride in. With such a smooth rap there is only once
choice that she can make isn't there? This is an infectious single which
should do well for the big fella. In the coming months I expect you won't be
able to escape this.
