Japanese producer Budamunk and L.A.-based emcee Joe Styles (of Soul Jugglerz) bring a collaboration from the “far Weast.” Thumping, deep beats from the East by lab master BudaMunk, used by ‘freestyle rhyme flow encyclopedia’ Joe Styles for a hazed out hip hop album.
From an ode to fallen greats like Guru, Big Pun, 2Pac, Dilla and Heavy D, to soul-infused contributions by P.I. and Sandy Soul. From LA To Tokyo is full of excellent blunted beats and tight rhymes. “The buddah monk’s in ya trunk, turn the bass up.”
