The Brooklyn-meets-Chicago duo of Saga & Thelonious Martin keeps the fire coming with “Karma”, a straight-up banger that serves as the final leak off their forthcoming album, “Molotov“.
Backed by Martin’s vocal sample-flipping instrumental, Saga sounds as motivated as ever to prove his detractors wrong. When he raps, “You can brush me off, but I’m-a put my brush on the canvas,” he’s not gritting his teeth or sounding bitter. Rather, it’s almost as if you can hear him beating his chest, proud of his work so far and ready to continue showcasing his talents (which obviously run pretty deep).
And like the project’s debut leak, “Yesterday” (feat. Fashawn), “Karma” also boasts a standout guest verse from Freddie Gibbs who shows up to spit a snarling verse. Gibbs addresses the legal issues he faced in Europe last year, which he ultimately triumphed over (as he says, “Sour lemon life, I smashed the f-cking lemonade”).
“Karma” can now be streamed through all major streaming outlets, and is available for download as the third and final instant grat track off the iTunes pre-order for “Molotov”, which drops next Friday (2/17) through all major digital retailers via Saga 718/EMPIRE. The album will be released on vinyl early 2nd quarter through Coalmine Records, just in time for the duo’s European tour.
