Classic Tactics :: SWAB X EVOLVE Combine Forces For ‘OUT FOR SELF’

a3248616188_10

After the release of the initial Masta Ace featuring single FAR BEHIND, I knew that SWAB X EVOLVE had something special queued up.  OUT FOR SELF did one better, however, and exceeded expectations by leaps and bounds.  I’ve always been a fan of EVOLVE‘s approach to wordplay, lyricism and performance, but something about SWAB‘s production does nothing but showcase the best aspects of these individual focuses, meaning that the bar is set high early and met throughout the project’s run time.  There are some high level features on this album, but even if SWAB X EVOLVE were the only artists whose presence were felt on this project, that would more than serve to make this an early contender for 2019 Top Ten lists.  Remember this one when the year-end comes around, and don’t sleep on it now.
