Singapore Kane - Top Shotta

Posted 6 years ago
Producer:
The Produce
Album:
Life on Wax

A Boston-based, Jamaican-born emcee with a style influenced both by his Caribbean roots and rap’s old-school greats, first-time featuree Singapore Kane is all about marching to the beat of his own drummer – in other words, he’s a Top Shotta. On his latest single, the up-and-comer gives us his take on the ever-popular topic of realness, lacing his anti-poseur, pro-authenticity rhymes with enough oddball lyrical imagery to keep listeners on their toes (and kinda hungry, at least in my case): “This is murder chop suey, I’m noodles with the beef...” Topped off with some unconventionally head-noddable, reggae-informed boardwork from The Produce Section, this eclectic track should earn Singapore Kane quite a few new fans in the Booth. If you like what you’re hearing, keep it locked to our front page for all the latest on the artist’s Life on Wax LP, scheduled to drop sometime this year.
