Artist: Sadat X ft Edo.G & Fokis
Title: Da Hustle Don't Stop
Label: Tommy Boy Entertainment
Someone as experienced as NYC all-timer and Brand Nubian stalwart Sadat X is a perfect spokesman for how 'Da Hustle Don't Stop'. Keeping things moving from acclaimed LP 'Agua', X breaks down how to stay on point - "the lane remains open/it's just how you approach it" - with that ever distinctive Bronx flow joined by Boston's Bulldogs leader Edo. G and NYC's Fokisproviding a pertinent hook ("you gotta go out and get yours/no matter the cause, I'ma get mine").
'Da Hustle Don't Stop' is the latest pass-the-mic cut that follows 'Industry Outcasts (with RA the Rugged Man & Thirstin Howl III) and 'Murder Soundtrack' (featuring A-F-R-O & Rahzel) - to a bread and butter video of street corner ownership and classic mobster-style, drama-bringing beats.
'Agua', described as "New York boom-bap in the classic mould" by Echoes Magazine, is Sadat X's 12th studio album, blessed with an A-list roll call on production featuring Pete Rock, Diamond D, DJ Scratch and Will Tell, with guest appearances on the mic from Brand Nubian cohort Lord Jamar, Dresof Black Sheep, R.A. the Rugged Man, Rahzel, A-F-R-O, RhymeFest, Ed O.G., Thirstin Howl III, DV Alias Krist, Wordsworth and Shabaam Sahdeeq.
