Hi-Tech "24/7" (1997)
"Book of Life Page 2" is the best thing Hi-Tech had to offer...his voice and flow shine with this beat, whose sample you should immediately recognize, unless you've been living in a cave and have never heard of Portishead. I don't know if it's better than the Portishead cut it samples ("Roads"), but the concept, lyrics and flow work well with the sample despite its familiarity. The chorus itself can function as a mantra, and the verses Hi-Tech builds around it are his vision for his life. This is one of those cuts that you gotta give someone props for making, regardless of how it's received, because they're putting their vision of themselves and their future out there, and shit is well-crafted. Includes vocal and instrumental for both.
