PREMIERE: Imperial “Yellow Yachts” – Sphereofhiphop.com

Ahead of the midnight release of Yellow Yachts by Imperial, we’re premiering the track for you. It’s the second single from the Layers album dropping on Illect Recordings.

Imperial shares “Yellow Yachts is a bit of a turn left for me. The sun was shining, I was feeling good and this is what happened. I’ve always had a bit of a guilty pleasure for more uptempo almost pop driven beats and it all just came out. There is more boom bap on the way, but this is just a little pause to let people into my influences.

Imperial “Know the Call (ft. Sareem Poems & Sojourn)”




Illect Recordings starts off their 2018 release schedule with an absolute banger, Know the Call. We’re excited to offer this single as a premiere!

Know the Call is produced by Imperial and features bars from Sareem Poems and Sojourn.

Crusty drums and classic raps, what more do you need? Sareem Poems and Sojourn took this beat right back to Sedgwick Avenue and knocked it out the park. It was amazing to work with the 2 veteran emcees as they brought the real rawness and added the sauce over the beat.

This single drops Friday January 12th via Illect Recordings.

Paradox & Imperial “But It Ain’t Broke” single

But It Ain’t Broke is an advance single leak from Paradox’s upcoming Imperial produced Grayscale LP. The single also features Vicky Flint (trumpet & flute) plus cuts by Imperial & DJ Descry.

The concept is that, just because some music might not “work” in the traditional sense, doesn’t necessarily mean it’s “broken.” As the song says:

I didn’t forget when hip hop was a lifted fist,
Now it’s a soundtrack for sick misogynistic kids.
So I’m glad it doesn’t work, cuz if it did,
That’d be bad in a world as twisted as this.

Audio: But It Ain’t Broke

If you’re digging the vibes, support the Grayscale campaign on Pledge Music.
