Saga gifts us with a well crafted cut with the help of uber producer Marco Polo. Tell me is a slow, cinematic burner that hits your chest like a quick swig of raw vodka. Employing his usual laid back but impassioned delivery, Saga brings the listener close to home with ease.
This is a one off track so hit the play button and get down with the program. For those concert heads, Saga is also currently supporting Fashawn on his European tour so peep the dates below.
Also props to Jasmine Ria Singh for the photo.
It’s rare that an artist can show development in a year, never mind four months, but that’s exactly what Brooklyn’s Saga has done with “Tell Me.” Like most of his break-out, From Out Of The Shadows, which dropped this past April to critical acclaim, the track is produced by heavyweight beatsmith, Marco Polo.
The two Brooklyn dwellers prove yet again that they’re long-lost rap brethren, on a track that’s as much of a celebration as it is a reminder to stop sleeping on Saga. For his part, it’s clear his pen just keeps getting sharper, even after killing it over Alchemist instrumentals on, Saga Ghanoush. Saga’s growing skill set is particularly evident on the hook, which boasts the BK spitter playing off the looping “Tell me…” vocal.
As for that celebratory bit? Well, Saga is currently the opening act for Fashawn, on select dates of the West Coast phenom’s upcoming European tour. You can view those dates and give “Tell Me” a spin right here…enjoy!
