Product Details

Summary

Few artists in hip-hop have afforded the longevity that Sadat X has. Where so many off his peers have faded into obscurity, Sadat somehow continues to write innovative songs, deliver relevant contemporary commentary, and effortlessly staying tuned to trends of the day. Having enjoyed an outstanding career in hip-hop, spanning nearly 3 decades as one of the genres most distinctive voices, his undeniable twang has commanded songs not just as 1/3rd of the fabled Brand Nubian (5 group albums), but alongside our genres greatest from Jay Z, Notorious B.I.G., Nas, & Common (to name a few). He's even been tapped by the likes of popular singer/songwriter Jack Johnson, legendary House-producer Miguel Migs and MC Lyte all in recent months for collaborations on their respected albums. And not just vocalists fiend for a good X verse; extraordinary producers from The Neptunes to Primo to Madlib to Prince Paul have all called in lyrics from the self-proclaimed Dot Father to accentuate their sound scapes.

When you hear the name Andre the Giant, your initial thought is a great, larger than life, ground-breaking, strength defying man. A.G. (Andre Barnes) was born in hip-hop's originating borough - The Bronx. AG was asked to contribute to Lord Finesse's LP, titled The Funky Technician. On that fateful session, A.G. met Showbiz. Bringing back some much-needed swagger and soul, the forming of Showbiz and A.G. is what some might call the rebirth of the Bronx. Show and A.G. became a collaborative intricate part of the superb Diggin' in the Crates Crew; an elite team of MCs and producers who can claim much influence on genuine East Coast Hip-Hop. In 1992, A.G. and his counterpart Showbiz, released their debut single "Soul Clap", a self-titled EP. Their debut album, Runaway Slave, followed and is seen to date as a hip-hop essential and they followed up with Goodfellows in 1994. In 1999, A.G. released his much antici-pated first solo debut, The Dirty Version. A.G.'s second solo album, Get Dirty Radio, was released in 2006. Flash-forward to 2011 and almost two decades after A.G. not only made an impact but a dent in hip-hop; A.G. continues to release quality Hip Hop albums. A.G. is also an intricate part of the group Trinity, gearing up to their dedication to hip-hop purity.

Since its inception on July 14, 1994, Fat Beats, has had one mission: to become the international mecca for true lovers of Hip Hop. Solely owned by Joseph Abajian (DJ Jab), Fat Beats first opened its doors as a small, vinyl only retail store in a basement location at 323 East 9th Street in Manhattan's East Village. Since then, DJ Jab has seen his company explode all over the place -- worldwide that is. Fat Beats Distribution is the premier international independent distribution company specializing in hip hop. Now DJ Jab has taken on a producers role in putting a true Hip Hop project together in Trinity. With production by the late J.Dilla and features from legends like Roxanne Shante, Everlast, Grand Puba as well as today's cream of the crop like, Slug, Immortal Technique, Roc Marciano and Ill Bill to name a few, the Trinity project volume one is destined to be a classic.

Comment: I listened to this a couple of times and I'm still not feeling some of the beats , lyrically AG and Derek Murphy tight , it's just the production lacks energy , very little boom bap , and for the life of god could rappers stop putting lame ass singers on their hooks!!!

Comment: Rap attack track is the best of the entire album. The album is good, but not extraordinary when you see the MC's on this album...Agree with sza on that point, the production level is low. Radu, this is hip hop here, X is one of my fav of all time, you are the wackest bro, go buy bieber albums.

Comment: 20 IN. What better to name an album when you have true longevity & when you have supreme lyracism??? Who else can make the claim. Which one of you new school pansies can claim ANY of your so-called lyracists will last a full 20? I mean RELEVANTLY. Not just did they come out in in the 90s and haven't died... I mean who will remain and who will want and even anticipate their shit??? See Legend. One of which Drake is NOT... Weezy is NOT... A$AP Rocky along with "Take a piss" Khalifa can never become.
