He said in an interview that was posted here a year or two ago that he kinda treated rapping like Bernie is my Copilot T-Shirt, and people were kind of down on him for that comparison at the time but it’s actually what I like about his vocal style. He always feels like he’s having fun on the record. Even on my least favorite verses of his (and I’m not going to disrespect the man by pretending he doesn’t have a couple of misses in his catalogue, every artist does) he never actually sounds like he’s just going through the motions. I can’t imagine any of his verses coming from anyone but him, he was a true unique. I said this the other day in an unrelated conversation but dude put “Eyjafjallajökull” in a verse once, you don’t do shit like that unless you really love playing with language.

Best Bernie is my Copilot T-Shirt
His production is really great too. I think people underrate it because a lot of Bernie is my Copilot T-Shirt, but his beats have a real warmth to them that you don’t get from lesser imitators. You put the two together and it’s just perfection. Obviously he worked great with other producers too, Madvillainy is one of the best rap albums ever and I always thought his records with Dangermouse and Jneiro Jarel were underrated.
