Soul Khan ft. Marv Won - Thunder in Paradise

Posted 6 years ago
Tags: Soul Khan
Producer:
Marink
Album:
Soulstice

Though hip-hop is, like any living art form, constantly changing and evolving, there will always be a place for nostalgia-drenched old-school jams. Having recently earned overwhelming reader acclaim as part of the lyrically aggressive, unapologetically underground Brown Bag All-Stars, crew member Soul Khan mines a mellower vein of retro appeal on his first solo feature, Thunder in Paradise. Backed by the sepia-toned production stylings of Marink, who grabs a sample from The Intruders’ A Love That’s Real (DJ Brace provides additional bass), Khan reminds us what raw lyrical skill sounds like, dropping bars packed with intricate internal rhyme: “It’s a sermon y’all been yearnin’ an eternity for, since you were hurlin’ up your Gerbers in maternity wards.” Guest emcee Marv Won jumps on board to showcase his own old-school bona-fides on the front, and DJ Goo tops it all off with authentic cuts on the hook. Like what you’re hearing? Keep it locked for all the latest on Soul Khan’s Soulstice LP, which has yet to receive a solid release date.
