SummarySadat X is back with a full-length album that his fans have been craving for.The Wild Cowboy is best known for the long list of hits he had as a member of Brand Nubian such as "Slow Down", "All For One", and "Punks Jump Up" and the several classic guest appearances on tracks by Rap heavyweights including Notorious B.I.G., Common, Nas, Jay-Z, DJ Premier and Diamond D. His fans expect nothing but that 'true school' Hip Hop Sadat X has consistently supplied them with for almost two decades.
The album, entitled Brand New Bein', features all new tracks with guest vocals KRS-One, Buckshot, Lord Jamar, Grand Puba, CL Smooth, Rahzel, Craig G, C-Rayz Walz and more. This project does not fall into the trap that many new albums do by trying to cater to modern-day trends, it actually fills the void of raw Hip Hop that people are specifically looking for.
There are a few good concept songs, including one in which Sadat describes how he originally met up with the Brand Nubian. There is also a track featuring Rahzel beatboxing over video game sounds with Sadat bringing it back to the days of Atari. The DJs should be very happy to get their hands on the new "All For One" remix as well!
Brand New Bein' is produced entirely by DJ JS-1 and JW. Their past work includes production for Common, KRS-One, Kool G Rap, Big Daddy Kane, Pharoahe Monch, Canibus, Large Professor, Craig G, Special Ed, Das Efx, Masta Ace, Rahzel, and many more. Over the years the production team has released many albums, singles and break records that have all done well,a nd their names will also be a good selling point to the underground Hip Hop kids that will be looking to purchase this album.
Sadat X has stayed relevant by continuously touring with Brand Nubian and as a solo act. He has been through several passports recently and can be found on stage just about any night. To support the album, Sadat is embarking on a 10-city European tour in late April.
And finally, to sweeten the deal, Brand New Bein' comes packaged in a double digipak with a bonus MP3 data disc that contains instrumentals, acapellas, dirty and clean versions for all 16 tracks. This is a huge selling point to DJs, producers, and anyone who uses mp3's, which is just about everyone these days.
