Grammy-nominated producer Baby Paul & Detroit legend Supa Emcee form XrossRoads serving up homage to the late great Proof with immaculate visuals & an entourage of talent to pay tribute. With “I Swear” not only do we get the producer/rapper combo of Baby Paul & Supa Emcee but also the likes of the extremely talented Ty Farris & Pierre Anthony. All in all it’s a fantastic tribute & fitting to be released on the birthday of the hip hop pioneer Proof may he rest in peace. Enjoy“I Swear” above, here is a little backstory straight from the XrossRoads camp.

XrossRoads is composed of Grammy-nominated
producer Baby Paul and battle rap master of ceremonies Supa Emcee.
Titled “I Swear”, this collaborative track features rapper Ty Farris
and singer Pierre Anthony. The song leak is available on the rap
outfit’s Soundcloud. A tribute song to deceased Iron Fist Records
founder, Proof, “I Swear” pays homage to this hip hop pioneer.
Proof was a talented member of famed music group D-12. Both Supa Emcee
and rapper Ty Farris were signed to Proof’s Detroit record company.
Emcee and Farris collaborated on this track to honor their mentor’s
legacy and lyrical teachings. Hinting on the weight of the emotional
single, Supa Emcee explains, “If I can’t wake the dead off this album,
then I’m not lyrically conscious.” The two lyricists craft powerful
metaphors and use masterful structure to convey deep praise for their
mentor with unquestionable resolve.
On the production side, composer Baby Paul employs compelling vocal
sample chops and a rolling drum track to create a platform for the
song’s vocals to shine. Reminiscent of earlier collaborations with
artists Smif-N-Wessun and Black Moon, the esteemed producer crafts an
emotional soundscape using deep bass grooves. Topping off the
collaboration is Pierre Anthony, who lends raw hood vocals on the
chorus to accentuate the sweet, soulful feel of the instrumental.
Supa Emcee is an accomplished Detroit-based battle rap emcee from
Highland Park, Michigan. Supa received critical acclaim for features
in major film productions, having hit the silver screen in blockbuster
8 Mile and entertained audiences for UPN’s television shows “Moesha”
and “The Parkers”. The esteemed artist has also opened for major label
acts like Dead Prez, Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, Krs-1, Eminem, D-12,
Whodini, and Rakim. Supa Emcee has released several original works and
starred on internationally distributed compilations. Baby Paul, also
known as BPZY, is a Grammy- nominated producer from Queens, NY. BPZY
has worked with artists such as Naz, AZ and Black Moon. Now an
independent composer, Baby Paul was a one-time member of renowned
production team out of Brooklyn, Da Beatminerz.
XrossRoads is a collaborative hip hop group of Supa Emcee and Baby
Paul. With the mission of creating quality hip hop music, XrossRoads
is set to release their debut self-titled album in late 2018 x early
2019.

Semi Six - "Beauty"

Wasting no time after unleashing his last banger “DIRT” and appearing on the recently released album from super-group “People Under Detroit” (Illadope + L.A.Z of Clear Soul Forces) is some brand new heat from Semi Six. With a deliverance of clean-cut visuals of himself alongside one beautiful lady for accompaniment the aptly titled “Beauty” offers another sampling of the emcee’s refined abilities. It’s a record that has Semi Six doing what he does best as he illustrates with true lyricism in a fashion that had me reminiscing of Nas style-wise while brandishing his own definitive touch in top-notch form. Shot on location at La Casa Cigars and Lounge, located in Detroit’s Harmonie Park take in the views of “Beauty” above and enjoy!
