The most slept-on trio of the West Coast, Strong Arm Steady, continue their grind, as the Statik Selektah-produced Stereotype nears its 4/20 release date. “Premium” is the lastest leak from the project and another exhibit of their individual talents bringing contrasting elements together to flow as one. Krondon’s mellow, soft-sounding gets the track kick-started while Phil the Agony’s inflection and strong-armed tones of voice (no pun intended) bring a new octane and level of energy without compromising his lyrical ability. And Mitchy Slick closes off the record with a plethora of silky smooth flows that’ll have you rolling anticipation blunts two weeks before the tape drops. Additionally, not to be forgotten, Hip Hop’s hardest working and most consistent producer, Statik Selektah delivers another thumping beat, like he always does.
Bonus: It’s two for the price of none with the video for SAS’s earlier leak “Classic,” inspired by Krondon’s affection for Instagram (which is now finally on Android, woop woop!).
