Banger brought to visual life by Shabaam Sahdeeq and J57 off of their forthcoming project, Precious Stones. This track is one of those that just represent hip hop to the fullest. The fresh rhymes from Sahdeeq…the production from J57…and then the scratches by Chinch33 leave a cumulative impression on the masses. Be prepared for something special when the project drops.
Here’s another dope single that I missed out on a week and a half ago but I have to rep it because it’s dope music from impeccable artists. Shabaam Sahdeeq and J57 have a time-tested formula and deliver to your eardrums raw and unfettered. I have been rocking with Sahdeeq from the beginning and there will be no stopping that support. He is a legend and continues to deliver outstanding music. He and J57 really represent all that is outstanding in hip hop and continue to deliver…at…a…steady…pace.
Precious Stones…due out soon!
Shabaam Sahdeeq and J57 have been cooking in the lab and this is the second single from their upcoming project which you know will be flames. We have a veteran emcee who has been making contributions to hip hop at a phenomenal clip and getting better as the year go by, coupled with a producer who ONLY knows how to put out a premium product. For this track, Razor Sharp Vernacular, they solicit both coasts by grabbing sixteens from Born Unique and TriState.
So here is a list of my favorite EPs from 2018. I easily could have extended this list to 25 projects and been really comfortable about that. However, I really wanted to showcase what I consider to be the best projects in a year where there was so much greatness to consider. In the end, there were no votes, judges, or etcetera. This was simply a matter of personal preference. I hope you enjoy these projects as much as I did.
Are Jamo Gang (Ras Kass x El Gant x J57) responsible for the best EP of 2018? I am going to say yes. These guys are monsters in their profession. Their self-titled EP is nothing but bangers and this track is just a piece of the pie. Plus you get visuals from Skrewtape. This is a win for hip hop fans of all ilks.
Tenacity and D.R.U.G.S. Beats collaborated on the recently release album, Discussions. This particular piece of fire, Twin Dracos, features the accomplished J57 and is my personal favorite track from the album. The appeal is undeniable to hip hop heads everywhere.
Ras Kass, El Gant, and J57 are giving the kids a glimpse of the Golden Era on their latest single from the incredible Self-Titled EP. Remarkably, the project is available for FREE. I mean, I would have bought this project like five or six times over, so the fact you get it for free should speak volumes.
This project is impeccable.
Last single before the Jamo Gang EP drops on January 31st. You know that shit is going to be flames…and no…not lighter flames. Like California Forrest Fire type arson! J57 laces ANOTHER incredible uptempo banger, that accomplished wordsmiths, El Gant and Ras Kass stake claim to another bout of verbal armageddon. Does that sound over-dramatic? Not really.
Here’s the video for the recently released single from Jamo Gang (El Gant x Ras Kass x J57), All Eyes On Us. I’ve already told you how I feel about this song. This beat surrounded by this lyricism just makes for an incredible track.
The EP is coming in a couple of weeks and I can’t wait.
It’s early, but this track from Jamo Gang (El Gant, Ras Kass, J57) could be one of the toughest tracks of 2018. Good lawd! That bass line, the scratching, the bars, all the way down to the additional vocals makes this joint a legitimate threat to anyone’s ears. This song was so dope to the senses I almost suffered stigmata.
