Sampling Raja, Malaysian Style

While Yuvan butchers Papa’s songs in the name of remix, a bunch of Malaysian rappers have paid tribute to a Raja classic in style. Yogi-B and Natchathra sample Madai Thirandhu on their album Vallavan. I had no clue who these guys were, so I checked out the album and some of the other tracks are solid. The rapping is impressive and from what little I could make out, the lyrics sounded better than anything from Kollywood. They even pay tribute to Lil Jon & his Crunk (crunk-u king-kku respectoo) in the well-produced Move Dat. Other fun tracks like Ellamaey Kaasu has more of Raaja with a hat-tip to Padikaathavan, while Kamasutra uses a Carnatic-styled hook.

Acquire this album people. Easily the most interesting album in recent times with Tamizh words in it.

The low-budget video for Madai Thirandhu feat. ‘Lock Up’ Guna :-D

    Someone im’ed me this link last night and since then its been looping! Was that Karunanidhi’s voice that closes out the track?

    And yes, the rapping is impressive! As for YSR, he was the blind man in the apparent land of the blind. Now it appears that the land has more people with the vision.

    Move over YSR!

    move over YSR – ha! ha!ha! THats not going to happen. Your malaysian rap band might have the talent, skills and merit. But YSR ke paas Pa hai :-)

    i have no idea what they are rapping/singing about, but this song is SLAMMIN’!!! my friend forwarded me the youtube link last week and i have been listening to it non-stop since then.

    i listen to a lot of hip-hop, and this song is better than 99% of the crap that is popular in U.S. catchy melody…tight beats…excelent singing…deft rapping…even the video is off-the-hook!!! truly, its got it all. kudos to yogi b, natchathra, and lock-up gunna. much talent.

    WHERE CAN I GET THIS CD??? i cannot find it at amzon, etc.
