After laying down his career goals with “Get It”, Shabaam Sahdeeq enlists three Tri-State bruisers for new single “Men Of Respect”. It features Jersey City’s 8thw1 along with Sahdeeq’s fellow Brooklynites Torae & the late PH (aka Pumpkinhead) who tragically passed away earlier this year.
“Men Of Respect” closes out Sahdeeq’s soon-coming EP, ‘Modern Artillery‘, and it does so with a celebratory air. That’s partly due to the heat supplied by Big Ape, whose sample-flipping instrumental blends perfectly with DJ Devastate’s scratch-laden hook.
Their backdrop makes for a slick complement to the four MCs on the track, each adding their own artistry & batch of charisma. They swap bars about the finer points of fashion, embarrassing their contemporaries, & finding inspiration in seeing Obama in the White House. Its sound may be upbeat, but “Men Of Respect” is also a sobering reminder of just how much hip-hop misses PH. That being said, his fans, family, & friends can at least find solace in his work on here & within his rich catalogue.
