Writer/artist Speed on the Beat (Boi-1da.com, SpeedontheBeat.com, Bandwidth.wamu.org, etc.) begs for the listening public not to call this a full-on comeback to hip-hop. However, in just under three minutes, the former “No-Fi King” steps to the mic and speaks on topics ranging from expanding his impact, politics, space-time, and more. A loaded track from an abstract artist, “DCIAC” is the first time SOTB has recorded in over a year — and showcases a drastic departure from the “no-fi” sound listeners have come to love (and loathe) from Speed.
