Sadat X – Freeze

In Hip Hop by Tom Hill

Sadat X – Freeze

The latest effort from Brand Nubian veteran Sadat X is the first single from his 12th studio album Agua scheduled to drop next month. The new 18 track effort will be calling on an impressive roster of heavy weights such as R.A. The Rugged Man and Lord Jamar as well as the support of an all star production team which we get a flavour of in this Pete Rock produced release.

Laying on a mix of aggressive scratches and vocal samples the resulting East Coast style heavy hitter provides a perfect match to Sadat X’s punchy delivery. Speaking on the album’s theme Sadat has described it as “talking about daily things that happen to the majority of the people” although here we get an insight into Sadat’s own experiences detailing coming together to work in the studio with Pete Rock.

Agua is out 15th July on Tommy Boy Entertainment. Pre-order available here.
