Friday singles roundup: Great new tracks from Supa Emcee, Valid, and more

“Jah U R the Greatest,” Negus Arubis
“Jah U R the Greatest” is a spiritual uptempo reggae cut which gives all thanks to Jah (as you might expect from its title). DJkage played double duty producing the track and directing the video. "The world needs to know Jah is the greatest today and forever more," says Negus Arubis.

“Keep Calm,” P8tience
Viral videos of police brutality may not be trending every other day (as in past years), but Detroit rapper P8tience continues to address these issues in his new single, “Keep Calm.” “I can’t keep calm I got a son and he could have been Trayvon. I can’t keep calm I got a nephew and he could have been Mike Brown.” the chorus goes. Paul Cabbin produced this slow moving track punctuated by subtle drums.

"Monsters Anthem," Supa Emcee
Highland Park native Supa Emcee is back at it again with his own brand of hip-hop brutality, horror, and rhymes. "No food in my stomach, watch me eat the flesh off you," he raps at the end of the chorus, threatening opposing emcees. DJ Allmatic’s dark synthesized track matches Supa Emcee’s rhymes perfectly.

“Vigilante,” Valid (Ft. Skyzoo & Magestik Legend)
Valid has always been on some real hip-hop shit and “Vigilante,” his latest offering, is true to his cause. He’s drawing the proverbial line in the sand by lyrically calling out all fakers. New York’s Skyzoo and fellow Detroiter Magestik Legend fall through to drop guest bars while Slot-A provides a first-class boom-bap track.
