You’re either relevant or you’re not…and it’s been quite a while since Smiff-N-Wessun has been on the frontlines!
According to Smiff-N-Wessun, they have been on the grind!
“It’s the return of Smiff-N-Wessun,” Tek says in a matter of fact sort of way.
Smiff-N-Wessun are both known for their Jamaican Patios during their raps, that kylt the game back in the 90s—
with hit singles, “Stomp”, “Gotta Say It”, “Prevail” and “That’s Hard.” So in the 2K millennium, the question
everyone wants to know…Is Smiff-N-Wessun still relevant? Or will we hear remixed beats over rearranged lyrics?
“The sound is ‘Pete Rock Soulful’ and ‘Smiff-N-Wessun gritty’. No bells, no whistles!” says Steele.
After naming Pete Rock as the producer on MONUMENTAL, who else is featured, on the album?
“We got Raekwon, Styles P, Freeway, Bun B. and Boot camp—just to name a few,” noted Steele.
With the new album, MONUMENTAL, naturally fans want to know…Will take another four years before they drop
some more fire!?
“For our fans, Smiff-N-Wessun has so much in store, so I recommend ya’ll stay tuned!” says Tek.
When asked about the state of Hip-Hop and how it has changed since the early 90s!?
“Hip Hop lives in all of us, in many forms. In order for it [Hip-Hop] to die we all have to die simultaneously…so I say
Live and Let Hip-Hop live through you,” Steele says.
In other words…“Hip-Hop Can’t STOP, Won’t STOP.”
