The underground hip-hop forces of Brooklyn, Long Island and Lawrence, MA, collide today as Wais P enlists MC Roc Marciano and producer Statik Selektah for his latest track, “Put Jewels On It.” Contrary to the song’s title, this one is far from the glitz and glamour hip-hop culture is often portrayed to be, grounded by Roc Marci’s brutish bars and the boom bap finesse — completed with a chorus sampling Prodigy of Mobb Deep‘s “Keep It Thoro” — of DJ Selektah.
Only six months removed since his last project, the DJ Premier-powered Premo Pimpin’, and Wais P is already lining up his next release, P*ssy Rich, which will feature this new offering.
A release date is yet to be decided upon, but the record will feature appearances from Action Bronson, Sean Price, Reks, 8Ball & MJG, Mario Winans, Sauce Money and more. That’s pimpin’ if you ask me.
