Shinsight Trio - Early Dayz Amazement
“It’s like that y’all! (that y’all) it’s like that y’all! (that y’all) it’s like that Insight and I’m havin’ a ball.”
US emcee Insight along with Japanese producers Shin-Ski and DJ RYOW form the Shinsight Trio. This group is known internationally for creating good hip hop.
While most mainstream hip hop artists today are incorporating dance, pop and r&b to appeal to wider audiences, the Trio continue to stick to their roots in using sampling and traditional methods to make their music.
This is my favourite song from their 2006 album Shallow Moon, Blurry Nights. Insight reminisces on his childhood and forms a tight narrative around some stories he remembers growing up as a youth. I love the positive frame of mind he uses in depicting some of these scenes from his youth. I can easily imagine other rappers rhyming bitterly about their experiences, but not Insight.
