D&G - The Scepter & The Sword (2xLP)


After the reception of “Battle Anybody” from luminaries like DJ Premier (#19 on his best of 2013 picks), DJ Evil Dee, DJ Eclipse and more, Dawhud and Ace-One started working on a proper follow up to their emceeing anthem. One track turned into an EP which then quickly turned into a full length project.

The project...

D&G (David & Goliath) - “The Scepter & The Sword” The concept for the group simply came from Dawhud’s name (David in Arabic) and Ace-One, who was in the midst of finishing up his “Rapmonster” series. Those two elements and the sheer chest pounding vibe of their prior track led to the creation of “David & Goliath”. Epic, biblical, and loaded with imagery that paints what the duo are trying to convey in just a name.

Produced entirely by Dawhud, the duo trade verses over his landscapes to join forces and reign together. From the opening battle cry of “Something’s Coming” to the closing of their p-p-p-p-p-Premier approved track, “The Scepter & The Sword” is a rap Odyssey. Assisting the duo on this legendary journey are emcees like Masta Ace, Rock (from Heltah Skeltah), Sadat X, Kokane and Pacewon alongside longtime friends/emcees Joe Harvey, JO and Otomatik. With a title like “David & Goliath”… legends should be involved.
