If you’re just now getting familiar with The IV League, welcome. Those of you who keep up with the scene most likely have that one dream-team of artists that you would love to see join forces. This is where the League comes in—stamped & served as an “international fraternity of extraordinary emcees, producers, and deejays”.
Veteran emcees Ras Kass, Shabaam Sahdeeq, & El Da Sensei have been in the mix for quite some time, and still continue to release full-length projects year after year that consistently offer something refreshing & satisfying for their worldwide fanbase to sink their teeth into. Their skills have yet to age. So what happens when you get them in the studio with some of Hip-Hop’s more burgeoning talent??? Well, it’s the perfect mesh as New York wordsmith El Gant offers his expected, unapologetically piercing lyrics, while Sam Solo, 4rAx, & thekeenone step up to the plate & deliver quality bars akin to their seniors.
After a handful of released singles under The IV League’s umbrella, coupled with a busy year for all of the artists involved, their full-length debut has finally arrived. The versatile, 11-track offering covers quite a large brushstroke of soundscapes for those easily bored, as Snowgoons, Vanderslice, Jake Palumbo, Poetiq Beetz, P Original, & more carefully select the proper canvas for each artist & theme. And the outcome is as blunt as it is raw.
