Napoleon Da Legend drops the lyrically rollicking “Shogun,” the second single from his upcoming debut full length album Awakening.
Produced by Mudd Beats, “Shogun” highlights NDL’s flow, which bobs and weaves throughout the track’s nooks and crannies. While the track isn’t a complete slam dunk, (musically, we would have liked a bit more variation, but dug the sound for the most part.. Replay adds to the hypnotic effect of the chants), it certainly works enough to keep us interested enough to follow Napoleon Da Legend’s spit game.
He’s a DMV cat but since he’s out and about in NYC these days, working with several locals, we consider him in our jurisdiction.
Truthfully, been hearing good things about NDL, who we actually first ran into down in Atlanta, during the 2012 A3c Hip Hop Festival, and “Shogun” is a sharp demonstration as to why we definitely will be on the lookout for the full length, Awakening, scheduled for an April 2 release.
We suggest you do the same.
