Blak Madeen (feat. Gift of Gab & Cyrus Deshield) – “Long Way To Go”

“Long Way to Go” is the powerful new single from Boston’s own Blak Madeen, who are gearing up to release their new album, Supreme Aftermath on January 15th. Since 2008, the duo of Al-J and Yusuf Abdul-Mateen have used their positivity and passion to craft some of the more poignant Hip-Hop to come out of New England. And that’s especially apparent on “Long Way to Go,” which includes a guest verse from living rap legend, Gift of Gab (of Blackalicious). Together, they recognize that with each step we take forward as a society to get better, we’re still not there yet. Their message is joined by rising singer-songwriter Cyrus DeShield who contributes a bracing hook, and is anchored by a piano-laden instrumental supplied by The Arcitype….listen below.
