ScienZe - Let Em Know

  • Artist: ScienZe
  • Track: Let Em Know
  • Producer: 6th Sense
  • Album: Hall Pass

In his official bio, Booth newcomer ScienZe explains that he adopted his stage name because, if “science is the study of all things,” then “[he is] the study of hip-hop.” That's one lofty claim – does the Brooklynite truly personify the entire body of knowledge we call hip-hop? I can't think of a way to test that assertion but, after taking a listen to new single Let Em Know, I'm not inclined to argue the point. Supported by Booth fave 6th Sense's appropriately gritty, piano-led production, ScienZe delineates his back-to-the-basics artistic philosophy. Though he's disenchanted with the current state of the genre, he expresses confidence that 'real hip-hop' will triumph over mainstream wackness: “It's the return of that old organic, snares hit your soul with the heat no fannin' / The radio be sick and every day it's automatic, featherweights float, this that old titanic.” Think this studious up-and-comer's got what it takes to move the game forward? Then sharpen your #2 pencils and jot down “December 20,” the release date for his forthcoming Hall Pass LP. And yes, that will be on the test.
