Single You Out: Jamil Honesty – 7 Crowns (prod. by Slumlord)

Jamil

Jamil Honesty has a new single featuring Slumlord called 7 Crowns.  And the song is laden in laid back aggressiveness.   The production seems very unassuming, but then hits you with some nice subtleties as in a well placed vocal sample and a scratched in Nas hook.  Honesty constantly flexes his way with words which gives this song that razor’s edge.

Also, if you have not checked his album out from late last year, Martyr Musik, that’s a MUST listen as well!

Single You Out: Jamil Honesty x Cool FD – Salute (ft. Fel Sweetenberg b/w Salute Remix (ft. Fel Sweetenberg x Ill Conscious)

The combo of Jamil Honesty and Cool FD are back at it again with a new single and a remix for that very single. This joint is a a true gem. Cool FD cooks up some production on the original that sounds so effortless. It’s smooth, soulful, and has enough knock to snap that neck back. Honesty and Sweetenberg integrate seamlessly within the rhythm and drop some crisp flows with some sick lyricism. I am particularly impressed with Honesty who sounds right at home with this beat right here.

The only thing different on the remix is the addition of a new sixteen featuring Ill Conscious. And he really does make a nice contribution with his verse.

Be on the lookout for Cool FD and Jamil Honesty’s forthcoming project, The Missing Flag.
