Already a hit in Europe, the rest of world now has the pleasure of discovering the Detroit duo on their debut release, Triple P. It may have a throwback-soul vibe, but with friends such as Jay Dee and SA-RA contributing, this is a futuristic hybrid of sound. Waajeed is a founding member of Slum Village and Saadiq is nothing short of a master musician, making their works full, warm and satisfying. The improvised, yet calculated beats and rhymes bring a shiver of essential energy that is addictive. Act like you know.
