- Album: Walking on the Stars
Do good things really come to those who wait? Booth newcomer AASIM certainly hopes so. After the 2005 release of Bad Boy debut album Money Pit, the NYC emcee spent years on the back burner, penning records for Diddy, Cassie, Pussycat Dolls and Dirty Money in the meantime. Now, having split with Sean Combs and company to join indie label Social Club Entertainment, the emcee has relaunched his solo career with Queens Sh*t, the lead single off a forthcoming street album. Grind Music (aka Sean C & LV) hark back to the Golden Age of boom-bap behind the boards, cooking up a gritty, head-noddable beat to back ASIM's hustle-centric verses, along with the characteristically fresh guest bars of Queensbridge vet Nas. Like what you're hearing? The stay tuned for more fresh cuts leading up to the May arrival of AASIM's comeback tape, Walking on the Stars.
