Shabaam Sahdeeq – Do You (Prod DJ Spinna)


Shabaam Sahdeeq releases his new album Keepers of The Lost Art next Tuesday and in anticipation drops a new single, the bonus track, off the new project. Check it out.

“Back in the late-’90s, the Brooklyn-based Shabaam Sahdeeq and DJ Spinna formed something of an impromptu duo: Tracks like the Rawkus-released “5 Star Generals” showcased Shabaam’s studied flow allied to Spinna’s signature space-funk production. It’s a winning chemistry that’s back in effect with “Do You,” a bonus cut from S-Dub’s new Keepers of the Lost Art album (out April 22nd)…” – Village Voice
