Serge Severe is back in the lab making music, after a sabbatical of sorts. It’s a pleasure for all of us to see him back in the studio, doing his thing, and creating an album of this caliber. The skills and talent that made him a staple on this site for years are still evident and shine greatly on his latest release, appropriately entitled, The MC.
Serge Severe links up once again with producer Zapata to showcase his pure flow in a cut that last just over a minute but clearly makes it’s point.
His new album, The MC, hits the digital shelf on June 22nd, so you might want to be a part of that!
Serge Severe and Zapata reunite once again to add a classic hip hop touch to their social commentary. The country is at it’s most divisive point in the 21st Century and the fellas are here to lend some perspective to it. Zapata and Severe have always been an amazing combo. I appreciate their past collaborations perhaps more than any other recent partnership. They just sound so in sync. This soulful landscape along with truly poetic observation, make this cut one to hear.
Another song from Serge Severe and producer, Zapata. This joint is not on their effort, Silver Novelist. If you dug that project I am 100% sure you will enjoy this track. This actually might be my favorite production from Zapata. I love the sample, the laid back vibe, and the touch of soul in between.

When Serge Severe drops a project I take notice. The man is amongst my favorite emcees with his style and delivery. It’s something that is as different as it is dope. For this project he teams up with producer Zapata. Zapata’s sound is a little less traditional than lets say, Terminill (Service Without A Smile). His style is ambient and ethereal. And while I may prefer the Service Without A Smile when comparing the two projects, Silver Novelist is undoubtedly worth the listeners time on more than one occasion.
Usually when I hear an artist for the first time I am rarely left with an impression. I would say less than 20% of artist submissions wind up on HHD nonetheless stay in constant rotation in my iTunes folder. Serge Severe does both…constantly.
Serge Severe is the epitome of consistency when it comes to not only bringing quality rhymes, but also quality music. He has come out with project after project of dope material yet I feel not enough people know about this man’s talent.
He agreed to answer some questions for this feature and I hope you take the time to read it and peep his music. The man is a great talent…
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…

It hasn’t been too long since Serge Severe brought us Service Without A Smile with Terminill, but he is not about to rest on his laurels. He is back at it again with a project on the way featuring production from Zapata.
This cut is something to vibe out to this Friday and ease you into your weekend and you know Severe’s going to bring you those crisp bars regardless of the production.
