Blu & Real Bad Man - "Aladdin"

Producer Real Bad Man has become a leader of collaborations as of late, releasing collaborative albums with Boldy James, Pink Siifu, and Kool Keith. His latest is with Blu. I couldn't say that the duo's new single, "Aladdin," is an old school hip hop song, but it's not not old school. Blu's flow sounds innately like classic hip hop, but Real Bad Man's production isn't quite classic. Instead, it seems to borrow from the early 90's more edgy pure hip hop period, the late 90's when R&B started to poke in, and a more modern style. "Aladdin" has an oddly timeless quality, which is not something you typically get in hip hop.
