Free Download: Gas-Lab – "Colección De Rimas"

Rappers are always looking for the perfect beats to spit their rhymes on. So whenever a new dope beat producer comes out, he sooner or later gets inundated with e-mails from MC’s requesting, demanding, begging, for some instrumental tracks where they can overdub their verses.

I’m totally speculating here, but I guess that’s exactly what happened to Gas-Lab. After he did a couple of beats for some rhyming heavy-weights like Argentina’s Mustafa Yoda and Spain’s Juaninaka, the avalanche of requests coming from all over the world overwhelmed him and so he decided to please them all at once.

Here you have it, Gas-Lab‘s newest project: Colección De Rimas, a good catalog sampler of what’s currently going on in the hip-hop underground all over the Spanish-speaking world, with some of the best MC’s in the game, from Mexico to Puerto Rico, to Argentina and Spain. All under the guidance of one of the most refined beat-makers to ever come out of Latin America.

Now this is not the type of rap that you listen on the radios and clubs and you most probably hate as much as I do. There’s no bragging about guns, gold-teeth or fancy new cars, and there’s no booty-shaking beats either. This is soulful, jazzy, laid-back music with intelligent, conscious, interesting messages. If you like Ana Tijoux, this is 13 tracks of pure rhyming wet-dream for you and best of all it’s free!

Oh! And if you’re one of those rappers always in search for beats, check this out, Gas-Lab sells you all the instrumentals from this album for just five bucks.
