Clams Casino’s Best Beats To Date
“Illest Alive” – Main Attrakionz
Truth be told, Lil B also got his hands on this beat back when Clams was working hardbody with the Based God. However, Main Attrakionz won the braggin’ rites battle for this Bjork sampled moment of ecstasy.
“LVL” – A$AP Rocky
A$AP Rocky shouts out Clams Casino the moment the beat drops, as he should. Clammy Clams took a Harlem rapper and erased his zip code, providing him with a sound that defied any region or state of mind. It’s stuck with A$AP’s whole career thus far.
“I’m God” – Lil B
In the midst of Lil B’s absurd superlatives like “I’m God” lies this gem of a beat. Clams grabbed an Imogen Heap sample, took her breathy vocals and made the chillout beat of all beats. Whether you’re a god or a mere mortal, anyone can rock to this.
“Always Have A Choice” – Havoc
Did one half of Mobb Deep anticipate some day riding over a Morcheeba sample? Probably not, but Clams Casino placed Havoc right over “Fear And Love.” Since Alchemist has experimented with Mobb Deep’s production, this was a nice transition.
“Wassup” – A$AP Rocky
Trippy enough to place you in a whole other mindstate, yet solid enough for A$AP Rocky to ride over it with the spirit of Bone Thugs. A beat like this can only come from a producer that truly knows the artist he’s working with, and that’s obviously the case with Clams and Rocky.
