’11 Best Beats: #2 Just Blaze “Lord Knows”

It’s tough to judge this guy because he’s actually my friend but thankfully the hip-hop nation agrees—Justin Smith is one bad muthafucka behind the boards. And the man who helped build the soundtrack to the Rocafella dynasty proved that he’s still destined for more greatness in 2011. The hardest moment on Drake’s Take Care comes courtesy of him as he turns an obscure gospel sample (sung over by a live choir) into a musical masterpiece. MCs would kill to spit over such audio crack and have done so without an official instrumental release. Make no mistake, Just Blaze is still dope. And he’ll remain that forever.

    Just Blaze gotta be on the new FIF album. Lord Knows beat is nice. But should’ve went to a rapper not R&B singer.

    @ZoomZoomDad-Otis — exactly — this was the best beat on the album. And he shares it with Rick Ross?! He only has like 2 rap songs on the album and he shared it with the Wing Stop guy? Thats why I say he is a good rapper and a good singer, I don’t think he is great. And this def stopped him from being great.

    I thought to myself, this should go #1 but far but then I remembered NIggas In Paris was a huge thing the last few months so thats gonna be #1. Rightfully so though, its hard to chose between these two beats. Niggas in Paris gets the people going tho!
