@ShabaamSahdeeq Comes With The ‘Modern Artillery’

MP3: @ShabaamSahdeeq - Get It

Brooklyn rap veteran Shabaam Sahdeeq is pleased to present his latest work, ‘Modern Artillery‘; seven track’s worth of straight-up Hip-Hop from a cat who’s perpetually making waves in the underground. That goes for when he was running with Rawkus’ finest, dropping gems as part of Polyrhythm Addicts, and putting out critically acclaimed solo records like last year’s, ‘Keepers Of The Lost Art‘.

On ‘Modern Artillery‘, Sahdeeq further cements his place in rap’s history with some Boom Bap help from the gifted Amsterdam-based beatsmith, Big Ape, with cuts courtesy of Sweden’s, DJ Devastate. And a large portion of the project was recorded out in Amsterdam while the rapper was touring Europe in 2012, which also inspired the project’s name. “I realized I was using my art as a weapon,” he said. “Peep the hidden message in the title: Modern ART-ill-ery.

The EP also boasts the likes of Outerspace, Ruste Juxx, Reef The Lost Cauze, Torae, 8thw1, & the late, PH (PumpkinHead). Those last three actually show up on the closing track, “Men Of Respect“, an ill posse cut that concludes the project with a commemorative feel. The release represents a collaboration with Dutch/Swedish label Elite Fleet Records, and it’s actually their debut project. ‘Modern Artillery‘ is now available through all major digital retailers, and a limited-edition tape version drops 10.17.2015 on Cassette Store Day. A vinyl edition is in the works…Stay tuned!!!
