Shabaam Sahdeeq links up with Planet Asia and Milano Constantine for this single off of DotGoIt.com’s forthcoming 10th Anniversary Mixtape. First off, this track is that fire that stalks you down a dark alley and then throttles your eardrums. The styles of each emcee are really complimentary over this DJ Ready Cee production.
Secondly, huge shout out to DotGotIt!. I think moreso than another blog, they have delivered rawness at an incredibly consistent pace. They haver personally put me on to many dope artists and projects that I may have never checked for. And truly that’s the purpose of what we should be doing. We are not necessarily taste makers, we are just making fans more aware of what’s out there. 10 Years in the game…congratulations!

I waited for this album for three plus years from Alpha Faktion. Their EP, Truth, Lies, & Audiotape is a staple in a very crowded iTunes Library. So when Azwun, Kraze, and DJ Enyoutee finally dropped their new project, Creative Control my expectations were extraordinarily high. But this is what the team did in the process of making this album while I waited anxiously: They made something that was timeless.
Newness from Milano Constantine who dropped one of the tightest projects thus far of 2017, The Way We Were. Constantine is a legit wordsmith…
“Heavyweight…I’ll crack your armor…looking like a black Spartan….”
And the beat by Prete Rosso is preemo. J-Bux drops the second verse and it too is pretty ill.
