The 3rd Power - I Need a Hook

Posted 2 years ago
Producer:
Rashad
Album:
Attack of the Drum

When I woke up this morning, the first thing on my mind was food, but I also felt a craving for some fresh, R&B-infused hip-hop. Turns out Booth-approved singer/songwriter, rapper and beatsmith Rashad was thinking the same thing: “I Need a Hook / I need a song, and I just might write it.” Lucky for us, he did write that song, which has just been unleashed as single number two off The 3rd Power‘s collaborative debut. Coming on the heels of the reader-approved ARP, this cut finds Rashad trading witty, conversational bars with partner-in-rhyme P.A. Flex, backed by a vibrant mix of chopped soul samples, keys and syncopated percussion. Attack of the Drum still lacks a drop date, but we’ll keep you posted on the set leading up to its eventual release.
