Shaolin Jazz Toasts Blowfly w/ Funked Up "Blow One For Clarence"
Shaolin Jazz returns to the surface with a funked up tribute to “the original dirty rapper” Clarence Reid aka Blowfly entitled “Blow One For Clarence.” The most recent addition to their tribute series, the track is the latest from the Shaolin Jazz camp since the release of the Donald Byrd tribute project Byrd Over Staten. “Blow One For Clarence” combines Blowfly samples with a dense groove and choice verses from members of the Wu-Tang Clan, demonstrating his artistic importance and the depths of his impact on rap.
“Blow One for Clarence” is the newest project in our SHAOLIN JAZZ Tribute Series and with this release we’re paying tribute to Clarence Reid aka “Blowfly.” Reid, an accomplished musician, producer, and writer created material for and was sampled by notable acts from KC and the Sunshine Band to DMX, and his uninhibited alter ego “Blowfly” served as an influencer to a range of famed hip-hop artists, such as Snoop Dogg and Ol’ Dirty Bastard.
