“Hard drums, dope groove, and ill bar work from my man Diamond was the main ingredient for this joint,” says Gensu. “It set the tone and standard for the rest of my album, and thus had to be the jump off!”
Gensu Dean – RAW (Album 11/25)
Based out of Dallas, Texas, Gensu Dean is a producer who has been quietly laying down some heavy tracks in Hiphop. His first production credits were on Crooked Letterz (David Banner) debut record Grey Skies. Since then Dean has had production featured on Brand Nubian’s Lord Jamar’s The 5% Album and Sadat X’s Black October, and Melatone’s Memoirs & Melodies. Gensu Dean has been called upon by labels to remix projects from CL Smooth to Ol Dirty Bastard. Dean is known for his classic use of the Emu SP1200, the result of which has earned him co-signs from legends like DJ Spinna, DJ Premier and the King of Rock, DMC of the world renowned Run DMC.
His latest album “Raw” is a awesome collaborative effort with Diamond D and many other artists, each song has something unique about it because of this, and I can’t find one that I don’t like anything about, every single track has a talented artist and every single track has a great instrumental this man is truly talented and deserves a massive big up after being underground for so long. ‘Let the smoke blow’ is probably my personal favourite track for obvious reasons, but every single track I enjoy more and more each time I hear them, good beats, good mc’s, good singers, Genus Dean has shown us a great range of what hip hop has to offer, proving, once again that hip hop is not dead.
