Planet Asia is still by far one of my favorite left coast emcee since the late nineties from when he was a member of Cali Agents (I do hope he and Rasco gift us with another solid project) and as a solo act. He is probably the more consistence one from said duo and has collaborated with more than a handful of emcees/producers on various collaborative projects over the years.
After dropping the heavy collaborative LP, Anchovies with Detroit producer, Apollo Brown just a few months ago, he is back with yet another hard body joint titled “Tha Movement,” featuring Chace Infinite, Innate, and Bumps.
Backed by the ethereal funk from producer Genetix, the four emcees are on their no-hook steez as they kick crazy wordplay and bravado-centric bars. Of course, it’s not all braggadocio, because “Tha Movement” plays out like a battlecry for ensuring that Hip-Hop never loses its way. But if you listen to this joint without rewinding certain bars—”Rap addict like crack habit, you can’t hack it/ Half-average cats on the map?/ Yeah, the fact’s backwards”—then you’re playing yourself.
“Tha Movement” is now available through all major digital retailers and streaming platforms via Raw Poetix Records—support the movement!
