On his brand-new banger ‘Alone,’ King Magnetic trades fiery verses with two living rap legends, Slug (of Atmosphere) and Masta Ace, over hard-hitting production from Khrysis. Making the cipher complete is Queens’ own DJ Eclipse, who provides the slick scratches on the hook.
The release of ‘Alone’ follows two other heaters off Mag’s upcoming album, Everything Happens 4 A Reason: the symphonic slapper, ‘I’ll Show You’ featuring Cappadonna and Dink, and the project’s inaugural leak, ‘Cash 4 Catastrophe’ which was accompanied with a video.
Just as fans enjoyed the real-talk of ‘Cash,’ we’re treated to Hip-Hop in its purest form on ‘Alone.’ Of course, we have King Mag and his teeth-gritting bars to thank for that, in addition to the always-sharp rhymes of his guests. Slug and Ace are the type of elder-rap statesmen who haven’t once lost a step in their decades-long careers, whether they’re talking their shit or serving up wisdom.
The two provide a fine offering of both on ‘Alone’ alongside King Mag, who in addition to his upcoming album is getting ready to hit the road soon. He’ll be touring alongside Wu-Tang Clan heavyweight Cappadonna, and up-and-comer Recognize Ali.
The album drops next Friday (3/31) through all major digital retailers and streaming platforms via King Mag Music.
