Today, two hip hop powerhouses, Sadat X (Brand Nubian) and El Da Sensei (The Artifacts), join forces and drop their album titled ‘XL’ — it doesn’t get any “bigger”! The album consists of 22 banging tracks of hardcore invigorating hip hop. The combined forces of these two lyricists is so magnetic and energetic! ‘XL’ boasts features from hip hop greats, such as A.G. (D.I.T.C.), Bumpy Knuckles, R.A. the Rugged Man, Nutso and Sa-Roc. That’s a major lineup.
My fav tracks on the album are “Power Moves”, “Copy Dat”, “Put Em Up”, “Three Kings & A Queen”, “Building Character” and “3 Rounds to Spar”. The entire project is flames though! These two hip hop legends are perfectly paired on this collaboration. The project is nothing but dope lyrics, hard-hitting drums, jazzy, yet gritty production, and epic scratches from DJ Spinna, Mentplus, Divine Drummah, Gensu Dean, Koolade, King I Divine, P Original, Kic Beats, D Rec, DJ Scienz
Tony Galvin, J Rawls, D Smooth/Ken Wood, and DJ Rhettmatic.
The chemistry is undeniable! This is by far a competitive cohesive body of work. El Da Sensei and Sadat are definitely raising the bar with ‘XL’. Like fine wine, these two lyricists have gotten even better with time. And the quality of the music has elevated. True hip hop enthusiasts will appreciate this album. Don’t take my word for it though. Secure your copy now to find out yourself!
