It is only natural to assume Hip-Hop turned Trap producers will have a heavy hand when it comes to rap samples, but when it comes to DJ Green Lantern it is quality over quantity. Whether it be Snoop and Dr. Dre’s ‘Next Episode’ or vintage Jay-Z on his own ‘Jigga Man Bootleg’, Green Lantern has been bringing Hip-Hop classics deep into the trap for a couple of years now and doesn’t seem to want to stop anytime soon.
Two months ago Green lantern released his ‘Show Me’ Bootleg to the delight of everyone’s ears. He samples another Jay song with ‘Show Me What You Got’ but unlike many other generic trap DJ’s, he brings his own style and creativity (and he appears to have plenty of that) to make it his own. His ability to blend popular and classic rap samples combined with his affinity for trap leaves fans craving more bangers to take them back to their childhoods.
If you have not been lucky enough to see The Evil Genius live yet, make it a priority. You won’t have to look far though, because he has been at almost every major electronic festival for the past two years now and is only getting more popular with a new group of fans. If you live in NYC, you’re even luckier because you’ll be able to see him this Friday, January 31st, 2014 at Webster Hall. We’ll be there, so come find us in the trap.
