Arguably one of West coast finest lyricists, Planet Asia has been quite consistent with his art, always steadily dropping new material for the past 4-5 years and more. After releasing a well received collaborative LP, Anchovies with Detroit producer, Apollo Brown just a few months ago, the Fresno emcee is back with an ill new single, “Tha Movement,” featuring Chace Infinite, Innate, and Bumps.
Backed by the ethereal funk from producer Genetix, the four emcees are on their no-hook steez as they kick crazy wordplay and bravado-centric bars. Of course, it’s not all braggadocio, because “Tha Movement” plays out like a battlecry for ensuring that Hip-Hop never loses its way. But if you listen to this joint without rewinding certain bars—”Rap addict like crack habit, you can’t hack it/ Half-average cats on the map?/ Yeah, the fact’s backwards”—then you’re playing yourself.
“Tha Movement” is now available through all major digital retailers and streaming platforms via Raw Poetix Records. Show some support!
