RJD2 is one of electronic music’s most high-minded producers; he composed the theme to Mad Men, after all. On his new track “The Good Life,” the DJ provides busy bongo beats and eerie string loops under veteran battle rapper Blueprint’s hard-hitting verses. RJD2’s lush beats build in layers as Blueprint delivers unapologetic, swift-moving rhymes.
“This project was a great chance for me to bring one of my favorite rappers, Blueprint, into the fold. I’m really happy with how it came out,” RJD2 tells Rolling Stone. “I think it’s a nice fusion of tonalities, and ‘Print sounds great on it.”
“The Good Life” was made for ORGNL.tv, a new series that explores different artists’ collaborative and creative processes. For more information, visit the show’s site.
