Blak-Ram is cruising for Artifacts in a Brand Nubian kingdom
BBC Radio Bristol’s August 2019 Artist of the Month Blak-Ram is following up on his EP ‘#Make Sudan Great Again‘, released at the tail end of 2019, with a hot new track called “Cruise Control” featuring two legends in the Hip Hop game: El Da Sensei of The Artifacts and Sadat X from Brand Nubian.
The song is dedicated to the late Daniyel Artis aka D-Natural, a producer and a talented musician who passed away earlier this year (2.3.2020) from undisclosed causes.
His beat and production style was inspired by George Clinton and heavily samples an eclectic mix of 70s funk and soul.
It’s a light-hearted anthem to bump in the car about cruising down the motorway in the UK, taking Uber rides where needed, speeding, dodging cameras, cops, and arriving safely at the desired destination having successfully evaded law enforcement.
El provides a strong catchy hook as well as several evocative verses, Sadat with his signature vocals brings life to the chase, and Blak-Ram begins and finishes with a bang.
