Gensu Dean & Planet Asia ft. David Banner & Tragedy Khadafi - Thyself

Posted 3 years ago
Featuring:
Producer:
Gensu Dean
Album:

During his recent trip to Africa, Cali underground mainstay Planet Asia picked up more than the usual assortment of souvenirs; his travels also left him with a treasure trove of knowledge and wisdom. On new promo single Thyself, the emcee shares a few of those pearls with listeners. Over frequent behind-the-boards collaborator Gensu Dean‘s midtempo breakbeat, fluid bassline and guitar/keyboard flourishes, the emcee preaches a gospel of equality and self-realization. Assisting on the guest tip, David Banner expresses his pride in his heritage on verse two, and Tragedy Khadafi follows him up with a 16 drawing on the teachings of the Nation of Islam. Complete with a dope, beat-switched outro, this joint can be found on Planet Asia and Gensu Dean on collaborative album Abrasions, released in February via Mello Music Group.
