As we all await Stara-Nova to be released on July 10th, Toronto emcee ELMNT drops a six song cut off it to hold fans over until that day. Featuring production from Ski Beatz, TF House, Illmind, Lakim, Ikaz, Mr.Carmack; Silver Magic Ships (Ships-tape to Stara-Nova) is a collection of tracks you can hit play on and listen straight through until the end, hypnotized by the inspiring melodies and thoughtful wordplay. I’m certainly anxious to hear Stara-Nova after hearing this teaser. Stream all sixteen minutes and thirty two seconds of ELMNT’s latest project after some words from his soundcloud page and stay tuned July 10th for the whole collection to be available.
“Inspired by Sixto Rodriguez, the title was taken from lyrics found in Rodriguez’s best known song titled “Sugar Man”.
Jays are killing shit, Kawasaki’s a G, the weather is hot as shit, Stara-Nova’s done, just quit my job, still penniless, got a record in Serbia killing shit in the turbo folk scene (need a Vice doc), Got to record with Rass Kass, Wu family & Tragedy Khadafi.. Never thought I’d get to say that, finally shed this anger, found God in the Devil’s playground, watched cage matches on replay, drank Bombay, pissed Georgette off & learned all about love, all over again. Live life, glorious, don’t know really how poor he is. LIFE. BLESSED. Silver Magic Ships. Stara-Nova, July 10th.”
