Last time we heard from Brooklyn’s Saga, the rapper dropped the insightful, Exile-produced “What You Want.” It was in anticipation of his then-upcoming tour of Europe, where he’d be opening for Asher Roth. And now that he’s back on our shores, Saga’s ready to drop new music and celebrate a successful jaunt across 17 cities.
That celebration comes in the form of “The Warrior,” a straight-up slapper bolstered by crazy rhymes and London producer Quincey Tones’ heavy instrumental. Saga actually debuted the track during his live shows overseas, and the international crowds ate it right up. As soon as the chant-centric hook hit, he had the crowd singing right along with him.
Of course, “The Warrior” isn’t all about it’s infectious chorus and banger of a beat. Saga commands your attention with every bar, spitting slick references to mentally and physically gifted warriors from throughout history. Chinese general/strategist Sun Tzu? Check. Serbian-American inventor/all-around genius, Nikola Tesla? Check. You get the point.
Like “What You Want” before it, this impressive track won’t find a home on any upcoming project from the Brooklynite. That being said, he does have a new effort in the works that’ll serve as his follow-up to last year’s Saga Ghanoush. We’ll just have to wait to hear that new material when it arrives. And hey, if it sounds anything close to “The Warrior,” it’s definitely worth the time he’s taking with it.
Check it out below and feel free to give us you thoughts.
