Latest Track Gives Fans One Last Peek Before September 6 Release Of Rooftop Shake
Before Metermaids' sophomore LP, Rooftop Shake, is released this coming Tuesday, September 6th, the Brooklyn-based duo of rappers Sentence and Swell are excited to release a brand new track as a way to show their appreciation for fans that have been patiently awaiting the new album. The track is an extended redux version of "Bad Things." While the original version of "Bad Things" shows up on Rooftop Shake, including the flawless Sage Francis guest verse, this redux version also includes a special, end-of-track verse from B. Dolan
Sage Francis opens the track with his signature gravely voice and rough neck rhymes. "How do I love Thee?" spits Francis. "Subtract the possibilities, countdown to Armageddon, god forbid if you ain't feeling me." Sentence and Swell attack the track with equal vigor ("This bird's on its last wings/ Wanna back out but I can't, 'cause I've seen bad things."), while producer and frequent collaborator M.Stine, who splits production duties on the album with 9th Wonder, lays a beating, guitar- and soul chop-driven track for the four emcees. As with the entirety of Rooftop Shake, DJ Rob Swift of The X-Ecutioners lends his cuts throughout.
This the lead Street Single from the anticipated "TAKERS" mixtape. Hosted by: DJ ENVY. Q samples a few lines from RICK ROSS for the hook "Im thinking Money, Every moment thinking Money" which everyone & anyone can relate to, backed by a fierce bass driven production this is surely a joint to make u nod your head. Q chants "Stretch Money, I gotta get it" explaining his experiences to get to the point he is at now and still he aint fully at the level he wants to be so he is gonna keep pushing till he is ON TOP and GOT MONEY to share with his Team..check this joint out!!!
