TERIYAKI BOYZ
BEEF OR CHICKEN
Def Jam Japan

Head Teriyaki Boy Nigo (a global fashion icon who also founded Bathing Ape) is engaged in some UN-style, BAPES-for-beats-type cronyism on his groupís new album. For starters, heís assembled the production team of the decade: DJ Shadow, DJ Premier, Dan the Automator, Cut Chemist, Just Blaze, Ad Rock, the Neptunes, Mark Ronson, Daft Punk, and Cornelius. Itís enough to make stateside MCs wet their beds while hip-hopheads shell out $40 for the Japanese import. Itís also an embarrassment of production riches that turns into an embarrassment. The wasted production talent is criminal; the intermittent English refrains are totally bizarre. Just Blazeís unusually thin, cavern thump is at least interesting; so is the Japanese crunk on the Swishahouse remix, and hearing Pharrell rap "Shake it like youíre apeshit" is almost priceless. Otherwise, save your money. Maybe you and a friend can split a pair of $600 BAPE sneakers instead.
