Up Above was honored to work with the one and only Sadat X, a legendary MC with countless classics as a member of Brand Nubian, and as a solo artist. Teaming up with producer Minnesota, (producer of the Big Pun hit "I'm Not A Player", on the bouncy cut "Minneapolis," Sadat X rides this double-time beat marvelously. DJ Spinna adds balance to the flip side by bringing the "X-man" some traditional boom-bap ala Spinna on "Exclusive Things." The productive musical career and life of Sadat X is evident in the music and reflected on the cover art work is well. All for one.
