El Da Sensei - Try Again (Highlighter Yellow Vinyl 10" EP)

$17.99

One of hip-hop’s most consistent MCs, and notably one of a select few who has successfully constructing a solid discography since making his debut in ‘94 as one half of The Artifacts, El Da Sensei is more than familiar with the idea of what it means to Try Again. Opting for quality over quantity, the EP features a trio of songs alongside instrumental versions of each track. One of the reasons for El’s longevity is that he never compromises his vision of what hip-hop is supposed to sound like and this EP is a true testament to his ethics. Lyrically El covers a lot of ground from introspective / mature verses over a mesmerizing piano-driven track provided by Joc Max (DJ Spinna), through braggadocio / motivational

raps on”Last Round,” a collab with the outspoken Detroit DJ/ Producer/OG HouseShoes, however, the standout just might be the D-Smooth produced, Redman-approved, “Smoke To Me,” El’s highly descriptive ode to his favorite plant. If this brief but potent 10” leaves you wanting more, rest assured El is gonna keep delivering, just as he has been doing for nearly 20 years. Stay tuned for upcoming projects by El Da Sensei on Redefinition Records, including the return of the The Artifacts as well as collaborations with K-Def, Def Dee, Damu The Fudgemunk, Klaus Layer and more.
