OnlyOne “Say What” (prod. by Sapient) [audio]
OnlyOne has a habit of releasing albums out of the blue and today is yet another sign that this habit is becoming a full blown addiction. With no previous mention or promotional efforts, the Sandpeople emcee released Police Brutality (B-Sides) today – an album full of previously unreleased music that was created during and following the Police Brutality era. If you were sleeping during that time period, Police Brutality was a double album between OnlyOne & Illmaculate, with each of them getting their own side to introduce themselves and explain their attitude towards police (the cover made it pretty obvious too). Years later, OnlyOne has released a little bit more of the magic but it’s really only a teaser to get fans ready for the upcoming OnlyOne and Illmaculate album Only & Ill, as well as his upcoming Cult Classic 2 mixtape.
With that said, the 9 tracks on this new project are all produced by Sapient and highlight OnlyOne’s razor-sharp wit. Most of the songs feel unfinished with either verses or hooks missing, but the simple combination of OnlyOne’s rhymes over Sapient’s beats gives this informal album plenty of replay value. Police Brutality (B-Sides) is available now on itunes and other digital music stores.
