Janet Jackson in Poetic Justice ca. 1993

UPDATE: Scoop DeVille has disavowed this instrumental version via the twitters, so apparently it is a bastardized recreation of his original beat. Don’t let that stop you from using it on your freestyle tapes though. Just re-label it “Any Time, Any Place” (Chopped & Screwed) I guess.

who’s ever posting the poetic justice instrumental virally. thats not even the right version y’all! please dont put my name on that #stop -@SCOOPDEVILLE

More DVD extraz from Kendrick Lamar‘s album of the year contender good kid, m.A.A.d city. This time we get Scoop DeVille‘s lovely beat for the Drake-featuring “Poetic Justice” which of course is built from a sample of Janet Jackson‘s “Any Time, Any Place” and named for her role opposite Kendrick’s spiritual guru Tupac Shakur in the 1993 John Singleton film of the same title. A dope beat and–sans Drizzy and K.Dot–a bonus for Okayplayers who, statistically speaking, tend to be Janet-lovers and Drake-haters. The numbers don’t lie. Stream or download below:
