Pretty excited about this one, folks. One week ago on Twitter one of our new favorite artists, S-Preme, announced that he liked Asher Roth’s G.R.I.N.D. instrumental. Having just featured both S-Preme’s “Popular” and Asher Roth’s “G.R.I.N.D.” the idea of hearing the combination was tremendously exciting – so we told S-Preme to “Do It” on Twitter, as evidenced in the convo above. Imagine my surprise when I just saw the completed track, complete with dope artwork, featured on the incredibly popular/one of our favorite music blogs Gowhere Hip Hop. The surprise turned into delight when I started listening – S-Preme kills it. From his opening line “I’m looking up, I’m looking forward, to looking back…” to his final well-sung chorus this song is sure to be a NBS favorite. We’re really happy S-Preme came through (he released it the next day!) and happy we could play a small part in making the track happen. Enjoy and shout out to S-Preme for coming through – can’t wait for your upcoming EP S-Prodigy.

S-Preme – Popular

What are the elements that made Jay-Z’s classic “Hardknock Life” so good? The answer’s simple – a catchy sample from the broadway play Annie and a flow and storyline to match. While Jay-Z can pull sampling just about anything off, since his masterpiece few others have dared try to sample a broadway play…until Chicago’s S-Preme arrived. To create the masterpiece that we feature below, S-Preme utilized a snippet of broadway star Kristen Chenowith’s “Wicked” song “Popular” as a chorus. S-Preme created a beat and chorus with tremendous potential – and while this alone is impressive, the best part of this song is how S-Preme’s verses fit with it. He kills it – ending the song “success is spelled with two t’s//talent time//until then im living in my mind//where im…popular.” Whether this MC becomes popular or not remains to be seen, but with songs like this he certainly could be soon – we’ll keep an eye on this talented MC in the meantime and keep you updated – for now check out the song below and download his latest, outstanding mixtape here.
