Sehr dopes ding! Saga & Thelonious Martin liefern einen sehr angenehmen NYC/Chi-Town Sound mit Features von Freddie Gibbs, Fashawn, Rapper Big Pooh etc. ab.

Zu den beiden Jungs:

Saga ist zur Hälfte puertorikanischer Abstammung. Seit über 15 Jahren lebt der Italoamerikaner vegan, praktiziert Yoga und Meditation. Zuletzt arbeitete er mit Produzenten wie Alchemist, 20Syl, Marco Polo, Exile, Ayatollah und Nottz zusammen.

Thelonious Martin ist Mitglied des SAVEMONEY-Kollektivs um Chance the Rapper und Vic Mensa. Seit er über die J Dilla/Madlib-Schule zum Produzieren kam, war er als Beatlieferant für Künstler wie A$AP Rocky, Action Bronson, Joey Badass, Mac Miller, Ab-Soul, Odd Future und Curren$y tätig.

With their well received collaborative LP ‘Molotov‘ now available, the East Coast/Midwest tag-team of Saga and Thelonious Martin head to the rapper’s stomping grounds of Brooklyn for album’s debut video, “Where We Live (Brooklyn).”

Directed by Surf School’s Infamous Oz, the visuals put the heart of the BK on full display as the rapper-producer video hit up some of their favorite spots. That includes getting a lil’ grimy with the local cats at the legendary Gleason’s Gym and, of course, diggin’ in the crates at Black Gold Records.

Watching these two hit up Brooklyn landmarks together and just kick it, further proves their chemistry, which is on full display throughout the LP. Of course, anyone can hear that chemistry on “Where We Live (Brooklyn),” which boasts Saga doing what he does best (rap with a purpose) over Martin’s ill flip of Ethel Beatty’s classic, “It’s Your Love.”

‘Molotov‘ which boasts features from Freddie Gibbs, Fashawn, and Rapper Big Pooh among others, is now available for stream and download through all major digital retailers via Saga 718/EMPIRE. The record is also available on wax, in a limited edition smoke vinyl configuration, through Coalmine Records.
