Lateef Featured on Daytrotter

Friday, November 18th, 2011

With his brand new album, FIREWIRE getting bundles of love from all over, DAYTROTTER has just joined in today and featured their session with Lateef the Truthspeaker.

Joined by Somehow At Sea, some of the brilliant producers behind FIREWIRE, Lateef’s DAYTROTTER session features 3 songs off of the brand new album including “Say What You Want”, a track produced by fellow Quannum alum, DJ Shadow, as well as the first single “Testimony” and the hot track “Left Alone”. Also in the mix is the LATYRX classic, “Lady Don’t Tek No”.

Here’s an excerpt from the feature:

Lateef is a different kind of hip-hop artist – actually prouder of his observations and those collections of insight that he’s gaining than he is in the things that he spends his money on or the things that willing participants foist on him with no strings attached. He says that he’s “always been about the word” and even tells us – truly or falsely – that the senior year superlative that he earned in high school was for Best Eyes and now, he says, “I look around wise,” as if validating that distinction that his classmates bestowed upon him for something they figured was just superficial.
