M-Boogie has had his share of lows. Not only was his production criticized for ripping off DJ Premier, but many of his beats grew extremely repetitive as he re-used samples, basslines, etc. "The Beat Down" is much, much better than the last few songs I've reviewed from Boogie. The piano-sample is addictive, and the Primo-ish horn sample is a nice touch. Rasco does not stray from his battle schtick, but he has a certain passion and hunger here not really seen since the Time Waits For No Man era. This is surprisingly distinctive and worth a listen.
