SADAT X: The Bass Player (2016) + video

the-bass-player-sadat-xStill spawning singles at this late stage in the year is Sadat X‘s summer LP Agua though I don’t think anyone will be complaining about the Brand Nubian’s latest, The Bass Player, one of the few LP cuts that features X on a solo tip. It’s charm comes from a beat replete with clattery drums and bassy funk courtesy of Bushwick bad boys Da Beatminerz and X’s distinctively raucous drawl as he spits rhymes that are part brag rap and part confessional. It’s a fine vintage combination but how to visually represent such a worthy endeavour? Perhaps a video of X down his local enjoying a pint of his own-label wine? Yes – that should do it…
(Out 9 December on Tommy Boy Entertainment)
