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.
Planet Asia is an originator and the style and vision he has shown have been the template for so many artists, and I think it’s about time people give credit to where it is due. He’s been cultivating his sound for almost two decades and remains a gold standard for me and my ear over the years. And he’s back at it, flipping his smooth style along with comrade, TriState, over another delicious treat from Dirty Diggs.
His new album, Keita, is in the works and we should hopefully be seeing that soon.
I fell asleep at the wheel when his project, 14 Karat Canvas dropped a couple of months, and didn’t realize what I was missing out on until he dropped this video. Tristate drives a hard bargain with this flow and with OhNo on the boards you can clearly not go wrong.
I peeped the EP and it’s all very solid. Make sure you check it!
This is a nice single. Although everyone must know by now that if Planet Asia on your track’s line up, you will be out shined without question. The man is effortless and a fan favorite here at HHD. Drewtradition’s new album, Carry On Tradition, is due out sometime in the near future.
