MCMI REPORT: Shabaam Sahdeeq drops new album! Guest stars galore!

Okay, I admit that headline was just to grab your attention. It could have read “SHABAAM SAHDEEQ IS BACK WITH A BANGER OF AN ALBUM WITH BEATS THAT ARE CRAZY AND FEATURING PLANET ASIA, MASTA ACE, MILANO CONSTANTINE, RAS KASS, EL GANT, J57, NICK WIZ, EL DA SENSEI & MORE!” True, that’s a little too many words for the title, lol, but it’s accurate!

Timeless: Of The Collection is Shabaam’s first album in 3 years and is the first in a Timeless album series in four or five parts to be released over the next two years. First let’s talk about the beats. Sahdeeq describes them as that

“dirty-sounding SP-1200/MPC sample type ish I love to spit to” 

Producers on the album include J57 (Westside Gunn, Joey Bada$$), Nick Wiz (Rakim, Cella Dwellas), DJ Doom (Blacastan, Nutso), Icerocks (Meyhem Lauren) and Arcitype (Vinnie Paz, Ruste Juxx). The production itself will have you nodding before the rhymes even start. The hooks, many scratch choruses, some spoken, a few sung, are all catchy and keep the song in your head. Among the notable featured MC’s on the album are Planet Asia, Milano Constantine (D.I.T.C), Masta Ace, Ras Kass, El Da Sensei (Artifacts) and El Gant to name a few.

Lyrically? Shabaam is on his A-game. Metaphors, stories of the past, wordplay, realism, battle-raps, it’s all in there. These are not freestyle joints, but well constructed, concept songs that will have you nodding your head in agreement. Whether you have been a fan since the Rawkus days or are a new listener you will be not be disappointed. 

The album is available for stream and immediate purchase via Bandcamp and Audiomack currently and will be available via iTunes and all other digital retailers on January 13th.

Stream/buy Timeless: Of The Collection from the Bandcamp or Stream via Audiomack

MCMI REPORT: Shabaam Sahdeeq – Men of Respect ft Pumpkinhead, Torae, 8thW1


Shabaam Sahdeeq

Shabaam Sahdeeq’s new album Modern Artillery drops next Tuesday, October 13th! Shabaam is laying out all the stops with this release – graphic art, videos, Limitted cassette tape edition, a future vinyl pressing in the works, heavy hitting features (Torae, Ruste juxx, PH, Reef tha Lost Cause & more), with one producer – Big Ape – keeping the whole project cohesive.

I am looking forward to the rest of the album, but for now … this joint right here? … Shabaam Sahdeeq – Men of Respect is a really dope record. Sahdeeq’s flow is fresh and invigorated, like he is a new artist just coming out (can you believe this dude was on Rawkus Records Soundbombing? Then again, so were Eminem, Mos Def and Talib Kweli and they are not slowing down either). Big Ape’s production is crazy, heads will nod, no question and then you have Torae, 8thW1 (who I am unfamiliar with, but am feeling the verse) and from beyond the grave, the Underground King, Pumpkinhead aka PH.

I think I’ve said enough. You know what to do – hit play, feel the joint and get ready for the full project, Tuesday. After you check the single, peep the promo video, complete with animation style artwork of the features on the album.

Sahdeeq-Album-cover350The album “Keepers of the Lost Art” has been bubbling for awhile. Packed with dope tracks from S-dubb -aka- Shabaam Sahdeeq, the veteran Brooklyn spitter who first blessed us with vinyl on Rawkus Records in the 90’s and was one of the first to recognize the talents of a then unsigned Eminem, featuring him on his single “5 Star Generals” back in the day, this album is a recipient of an Underground Music Award for best indie album of 2014. This video was on youtube then removed and reloaded twice due to mistaken content issues which have since been cleared up (you know how youtube is). It’s back up, so I thought I’d throw it up here, to give it some more light.

If you missed this album, you should definitely grab it, it is full of that boom gap original New York rap, with tons of features and an excellent beat selection.
