After laying down his career goals with “Get It,” Shabaam Sahdeeq enlists three Tri-state bruisers for new single “Men of Respect.” It features Jersey City’s 8thw1 along with Sahdeeq’s fellow Brooklynites Torae and the late PH (aka Pumpkinhead) who tragically passed away earlier this year. “Men of Respect” closes out Sahdeeq’s soon-coming EP, Modern Artillery, and it does so with a celebratory air. That’s partly due to the heat supplied by Big Ape, whose sample-flipping instrumental blends perfectly with DJ Devastate’s scratch-laden hook.
Modern Artillery hits all major digital retailers on Oct. 13 via Elite Fleet Records. Limited cassette copies will be available on Oct. 17(aka Cassette Store Day) while a vinyl pressing is scheduled for the near future.
