Bishop Lamont "Smokin' King Kong" a Dr. Dre beat?

Bishomp Lamont has been everywhere lately with various mixtapes as well as assisting the good Dr. for his highly anticipated album Detox. A recent Bishop Lamont track that hit the internet is the ominous "Smokin' King Kong" off DJ Whoo Kid's DJ mixtape Pow Radio Vol.10. Whoo Kidd calls out the beat as a Dr. Dre production and quickly sent blogs and websites in a frenzy over finally getting some new Dre. Here, take a listen:



Sounds like a Dr. beat and Whoo Kidd says it's a Dre beat but as in turns out it's not. Here's what Dae One, one of Bishop Lamont's inhouse producers, had to say about the track:

"OK SP LET ME CLEAR A FEW THINGS UP HERE GUYS BEFORE THIS THREAD GETS CRAZY,1ST OFF THATS NOT DR. DRE BEAT IM NOT SURE WHAT WHOO KIDD WAS DOING ON THAT ONE, THATS DONE BY DANJA HANDZ(THINK TIMBO,)"

That's right Danja did the beat and it's not the first time he's worked with Lamont, as we showed you when we discussed the other Bishop/Danja track called "So Sad" for his Pope Mobile mixtape. I have to say I'm surprised this is a Danja track, it's very different than most of his other productions and I'm a big fan of when a producer steps out of the box of what is expected or his/her signature sound and shows us another side of what they can do behind the boards. That's my 2 cents, what are your thoughts?

Props to Trent on the info.

  8. Now who has said that Tim's tracks from HC are not as good as Pharrell's?!
    Amazing! I love Voices. It sounds so dark, as if the song was written by Massive Attack.
