Rapper C.Shreve the Professor and producer Es-K share their new collaboration album, ‘I Know How To Dig’.
The album centers around Es-K’s adept sample digging and Shreve’s deep dive lyricism.
The title track highlights the Professor’s desire to create change in the world and his realization that the best way to do that is to teach others how they can change it.
“I seen a mountain needed movin but I couldn’t move it / But I know how to dig and I taught a couple students.”
The production varies from lo-fi boom bap to legitimate bangers.
With a run time under 20 minutes, the album manages to find the sweet spot of being easily approachable while also having the depth required to provide high level replay value.
