“This is hip-hop, first and foremost. One doesn’t need to be a Muslim or a Five Percenter or whatever to feel it. Music is universal.”
Boston-repping rap duo, Blak Madeen, wants you to remember the above quote when you’re listening to their passionate, thoughtful, and altogether-ill new album, Supreme Aftermath. Yes, the 14-track LP tackles issues that hit close to home for these two proud Muslim men, who use their words to address the growth of Islamophobia and misinformation spread by politicians and the news media. However, Supreme Aftermath is also grounded by slick bravado, well-aimed lyrical darts, and head-nodding production fromThe Arcitype, Teddy Roxpin, Skin Ced, and Sicknature (of The Snowgoons)
Of course, you may have already known that if you listened to their ill “Guerilla Soldiers” single featuring Planet Asia. If not, well, consider this your introduction to one of the dopest acts to come out of Beantown. Supreme Aftermath is a powerful, cohesive effort boasting a number of other highlights (the emotional “Long Way To Go” and aptly titled “Energetic Darts,” among them) along with standout features from Gift of Gab, Blacastan, and Divine Styler.
You can listen to Supreme Aftermath in its entirety below and purchase it on iTunes. It’s out now via Rhyme Dawah.
