Last heard getting down with LA’s Self Scientific, Lao Fai returns for an ABB Records affiliated 12″. DJ Khalil lends his production talent to the sides but hits a slight misstep with “My Word”. The guitar melody is a welcome departure from the conventional boom bap but it comes off too light, lacking the meat to bring you into the song or to back up Lao Fai and Chase Infinite’s verses. Pleasant but not punchy. Cue up “I Put My Life On It” instead – falling key melodies and a roughneck bassline starts to nudge your neck into motion and Lao Fai’s coming in battle-mode rather than philosophical sparks some heat. It’s cool sh*t though nothing I ain’t never heard before from other MCs. Last up it’s “Spitover90″ – word up to Khalil for sampling a vibe version of the classic Japanese lullaby “Sakura” (same song that “Tried by 12″ was based off of, but not the same version). Unfortunately, I wasn’t impressed by Lao Fai’s verses – standard issue underground lyricism and compared to Chase Infinite who walks a nice line between the thuggery of LA’s streets and the introspective wisdom that Self Scientific has become known for, Lao Fai is clearly more disciple than master.
