Quannum and Solesides co-founder, and Grammy-nominated MC, Lateef the Truth Speaker taps Gift of Gab and Lyrics Born to join in for the impending “Class War”. The single is the first of many we should expect from Lateef the Truth Speaker. With an apt title, we know what to expect from the trio as they bring our consciousness closer to the thick of the action. The trio representing the 1% detail how we are all stuck in a rat race where the rich get richer and the rest of us are poor. The dubbly track also features the vocal talents of reggae artist Winstrong while acclaimed Bay Area DJ and producer Jah Yzer handle the lush production.
“Class War” is off Roots & Tings, a collaborative project featuring Lateef, Jah Yzer and Winstrong. The new music draws deeply and respectfully from the history of hip-hop and reggae while pushing a new vibe to create powerful and provocative tracks. Roots & Tings will roll out singles monthly throughout 2019 with Quannum Records. Each release will be accompanied by original artwork, limited edition t-shirts from aspiring designers and will be available on both vinyl 45’s and digitally, everywhere you can stream.
