Shabaam Sahdeeq is undoubtedly a busy man and to show how much work he has been putting in lately, he’s assembled Degrees Of Separation for established fans and new listeners a like to get acquainted with what he’s been up to lately. Degrees Of Separation includes a lot of the dope singles we have featured on HHD this year, a lot of guest shots that he’s been on, and some newer tracks I hadn’t heard yet.
As for my favorites? I am glad you asked. It’s got the Harry Fraud produced Futuristic which is one of my favorites not only of Sahdeeq but by any artist this year. I am also partial to the Lewis Parker produced Walking On A Razor. I am sure that you will appreciate the talent the man brings to the table after listening to the project and find a few favorites of your own.
It’s been a while since I put one of these together and for that I apologize. There were quite a few tracks that I heard in July and wanted to put them together for one of these compilations…so without further ado…
1. Animal Pak (Praverb the Wyse x Don Street) – Banger
2. Substantial – Check My Resume
3. Shabaam Sahdeeq x Eddie B x Smoke DZA – Futuristic
4. Illogic x Blockhead – Poster Boy
5. Dub MD x Vandalyzm x Substantial x Kel Spencer x K-Sise – Requiem
6. Cayoz x Ensilence – Retrospect
7. Layne Harper – Medicine Cabinet
8. Veteran Assassins – Paint The Town Red
9. Sciarii x Tableek x Blacastan – Fear No Man
10. Miami Beat Wave x Locos Por Juana x Omniscient x ArtOfficial – Succeed
11.Skrewtape x C-Rayz Walz x Shabaam Sahdeeq – 3 Ring Circus
12. CF – Terminate On Site
13. Serge Severe x Zapata – Hunger Games
This joint is top choice in my book. I talked about the music before when I briefly reviewed the single, but it begs repeating how dope this beat is and how each emcee puts in the necessary work to make it memorable. I can’t wait to hear Wolves in it’s entirety.
Sometimes there is so much beauty to behold in the most simple of tracks. Harry Fraud does it again. The acoustic guitar and the hand claps lead the way for our emcees to release verbal fury. And I can think of few others that have been on such a roll as Shabaam Sahdeeq. He has been ripping verses better than at any other point in his career. He, Eddie B, and Harry Fraud have a project dropping soon entitled, The Wolves.
