With their highly anticipated collaborative album coming soon, Saga & Thelonious Martin drop their gripping and lyrically rich lead single, “Yesterday,” featuring a compelling guest verse from Fashawn.
The track truly exemplifies why so many heads are eager to hear the duo’s album, Molotov. Musically, you have Martin showcasing his production wizardry by combining slapping percussion with a crazy sample flip. It’s really yet another example of why the Chicago producer is one of the best doing it right now.
And the same goes for Saga, the Brooklyn-based rapper whose career continues to blossom. With that in mind, there’s extra potency to his rhymes on “Yesterday,” a track that dives deep into growth—both as an artist and as a man. Whereas Saga digs into the former with his book-ending verses, Fashawn passionately raps about being a young father who finds truth and power in his role as a parent. It makes for a truly engaging listen, and one that’ll leave you wishing Molotov was dropping tomorrow.
“Yesterday” can now be streamed through all major streaming outlets, and is available for download as the first instant grat track off the iTunes pre-order for Molotov, which drops February 17 through all major digital retailers via Saga 718/EMPIRE. The album will be released on vinyl early 2nd quarter through Coalmine Records, just in time for the duo’s European tour.
