@logicmarselis - "cheesesteak eggrolls" beat tape

When Fredericksburg Virginia producer Logic Marselis isn't doing work with emcee UllNevaNo, he's constantly knocking out instrumental albums his discography says a lot. Logic drops tapes at random without telling anybody cause he's all about creating dope music for the masses, and being that madlib is one of his biggest influences his work ethic and focus is uncomparable when releasing music. Logic has released a instrumental project entitled "Cheesesteak Eggrolls" a very popular carry out item in Baltimore md, the inspiration behind it was from him visiting baltimore on countless occasions, he's fascinated with how raw and authentic the city is not to mention his favorite show is the "wire." Instrumentals on the tape that stands out like the bass line driven sampled "north ave" takes listeners on a ride on one of the most famous streets in Baltimore if your a resident of the city you have to be familiar with "north ave," Logic also takes you in for some cheesesteak egg rolls on the hard drum "Jerry's" which sounds like the equivalent of a 70s game show intro, that's where the inspiration of this beat tape came about, just from eating at Jerry's. On "E cold spring lane" Logic asks Ullnevano for some assistance which is the only track with vocals on the whole project, Neva takes you on a trip and very descriptive story on what goes down in a sneaker lineup, when trying to purchase the latest pair of Jordan's, starting out lines like "hopped out the taxi/wearing taxi's/.... Each track title is a reference to the culture of Baltimore, so when you listen to it think of it as ode or paying homage to the city of a Baltimore from Logics eyes.
