Single You Out: Wais P. & Pete Twist – Coup D’ Etat (ft. Eto)

New joint from the forthcoming album by Pete Twist, entitled Hans Gruber, and I can’t wait to get my hands on that project. For those that don’t know the name, Twist has been crafting bangers for a while most notably in his partnership with Born Unique. I love his body of work, and I am glad he has something dropping with his name on it.

This song with Wais P and Eto, is another example of Twist’s exceptional skill as a producer. It has that dark and ominous feel with the guitar strings giving it that extra touch. And the emcees use their talents almost as a menacing whisper over the track. Really love this song.

Note:

This is the first review of an album that we have done for Shabaam Sahdeeq.    That’s odd because we have posted a ton of singles for various other projects, but this is really his first viable album in a long while.  He has stayed busy with a bunch of mixtapes and guest features, all the while creating and crafting his own album,  Keepers Of The Lost Art.   The album has actually been a long time in the making, as I first heard this album titled a couple of years ago.

Note:

Listen.  I am going to make this easy to understand.  If you like that raw, grimy, New York boom-bap, then Nutso is that dude.  I don’t know if there is a doper delivery in the Rotten Apple than his.  Sure there are people who have clever rhyme schemes and intricacies but when it comes to straight flow and emotion, Nutso  has got it on lock.
