As a tantalizing preview for his upcoming album Sade, Hus Kingpin (of Tha Connection) has dropped the rugged banger “Style Star” produced by DJ Kryptonite. Like a razor sharp katana through raw tofu, Hus lyrically slashes up a breezy piano based beat accented by callous snare hits.
The track shows the NYC-based emcee blending the gritty street sound of New York boom bap with the smooth jazz hop stylings of Japan, a combination that works remarkably well and leaves the listener thirsty for more after the 1-minute teaser.
Listeners don’t have to wait much longer for more material from Hus. Next up is the Cognac Tape (co-hosted by Roc Marciano), which drops on vinyl, CD, and digitally on September 17th through Mello Music Group in affiliation with Digi Crates Records.
Then, shortly after that will drop the Sade LP with a stacked lineup of features including Milano (of D.I.T.C.), Median (of Justus League), Sonny South Beach, Roc Marciano, Mach Hommy, Rozewood, and fellow Tha Connection emcee SmooVth. Production on the project is handled by Arch Druids, Chuck Strangers (of Joey Bada$$’ Pro Era), DJ Kryptonite, Doktor Rheal, HTN, King AL and more.
