The last time I was this excited about a new Hip Hop artist (new to me at least) was Chance The Rapper. The time before that it was Kendrick Lamarr, and the time before that it was Jay Electronica. If you’re a true fan of Hip-Hop you know what I’m talking about. Nothing beats discovering an artist who has that special thing that separates the good Hip-Hop acts from the great ones.
Enter Quadir Lateef, with lyrics like “no gang sign i don’t rep a hood/I throw my kids up and scream out man-hood” it is obvious why he has gotten co-signs from Brother Ali to DJ Green Lantern.
Be sure to peep his remix of Common’s “War” and while your at it cop his music over on BandCamp.
