Single You Out: Recognize Ali – Godly Men (ft. Vinnie Paz & Ill Bill)

Recognize Ali is staying busy with yet another release on it’s way, Underground King II. And while that does not have an official release date as of yet, we do get the frist single, Godly Men, featuring Vinnie Paz and Ill Bill, produced by Sultan Mir.

And when ever Rec Ali puts his pen to work you know you are going to get a high quality music. This is certainly no different, only made moreso working alongside these legends.

Notes:

Quite a few dope projects made their way to digital shelves last week but I can’t let this one slide by, so out of all the projects, this is the one that I feel deserved the feature.

Nottz has crafted brilliance at least FOUR times this year providing the soundscape for albums from Blu, Bad Seed, Bumpy Knuckles and now NapsNdreds.   He just has an incredible ear and gift for what he does.

And I have a few other projects from NapsNdreds but none as complete as Trouble & a Pair of Dice.   His flow, wordplay, and content all shine impeccable on this project.  There are a few dope features on this album, but none of them take the limelight off of NapsNdreds.  He holds it down on all levels.

This is another must-have for your listening pleasure in 2018.  Don’t let it pass you by!  Here are my two favorite tracks from the project:

 

Single You Out: Recognize Ali – Holy War (ft. Vinnie Paz)

Recognize

Recognize Ali links up with Vinnie Paz to exchange sixteens over a banger from B-Sun.  I really enjoy the guitar sample used by B-Sun on this track, and DJ TMB really adds some excellent scratching to the joint.  And let’s face it, Ali has become one of the preeminent names in hip-hop, while Paz just shows he’s only getting better with his now legendary grind.  Excellent hip-hop.

New project, Recognition, is coming…when…I know not.
