Saukrates Is A Pioneering MC Who Has Worked With Nas & Redman. His Story Runs Deep (Video)
Saukrates has a decorated career that includes a position within Redman’s Gilla House roster, production for Nas, and his cemented status as a Canadian Hip-Hop legend. He raps, he produces, he sings, and Amani Wailoo also plays multiple instruments. Those who have heard it, tend to agree that 1999’s Underground Tapes album was a sparkling gem of the Underground Hip-Hop wave. Those who have not heard the LP are soon able to, as the project featuring Common, Xzibit, Sean Price, Pharoahe Monch, and No I.D. is being re-released July 28, with first time availability on streaming platforms. In preparation for the authorized re-release by Steven Mann’s S Dot Recordings with Saukrates’ Culvert Music, Soxx and his Circle cohorts Kardinal Offishall, Choclair, and Marvel re-made and remixed 1995’s video single “Hate Runs Deep.” With a knocking new take on the early 12″ single from Big Soxx, the new version shows that unfortunately, hate has not gone out of style.
With the rediscovery of Saukrates’ benchmark album, Ambrosia For Heads is proud to present the “Now You See Me” video version of the “Hate Runs Deep (2017 Remix)” by Saukrates, Kardinal, Choclair, and Marvel, which tells Saukrates’ story in detail, as his song KNOCKS.
For those near the Toronto area, Saukrates celebrates the Underground Tapes re-release on July 28 through a concert with Method Man and Redman at Bandshell Park.
