Hugo you crazy? Wu dropping, B-Mack dropping, Freeway dropping, Jigga dropping and you wanna tell them to listen to some nobody from, what’s that. Tenstown? Tensington? Well at least you support your own that’s for sure. People are gonna think you’re a die hard fan to any tune coming out of Sweden, no matter what piece of shit sandwich record that might be.
Next song I heard of him was the house music inspired They Wanna Know. It was released as single Too be honest I hated the beat at first, way too clean and it sounded like some techno shit whit rap over it. I wanted some heavy dirty bass drums and a funkier beat. Good rap, but still. The house sound isn’t unexpected though, at least not once you learn the track is produced by house producers Addeboy vs. Cliff (which I never heard of). I probably didn’t give more then one or two listens before disregarding is as crap. Then when the third single My Cool dropped I was truly chocked, damn. I had no choice but to give this guy another chance, and now even They Wanna Know has truly grown on me. It’s helluva club banger, I don’t mind the house thing at all anymore.

Neither My Cool or They Wanna Know really says anything worth remembering, just rhyming too the beat. Don’t really matter for a radio hit now days anyhow does it? And Adam Tensta got other songs with deeper messages and thought threw topics. Like Cry A Little where he talks about close ones passed away, it’s really a heartfull effort. This time the song is built up on some soul sample, it’s a tune a really enjoy and it’s good to see Adam rhyming over something other then house beats.

I’m not going to share the album here. The reason is obvious, I don’t have it. The release day is tomorrow and I haven’t even tried looking for a leaked version. Even if I did have the album I wouldn’t share it though, even though it could be considered morally acceptable since from what I know there’s no plans distributing it in the US. They probably ship it to America if you order it from his myspace (link at the bottom), so if you like the songs cop it. Hopefully it’s a decent effort. I’ll cop at lunch break tomorrow. Once again, Enjoy!
