The legendary Maestro Fresh Wes just dropped "Stranger" featuring Saukrates, off his upcoming album Orchestrated Noise. This track is HUGE, from the banging drums to the infectious piano riff, to Maestro and Saukrates on the vocals. Saukrates actually performs double duties on this one, as he handles the production and blesses the mic, laying down the opening verse and the hook.

"I grew up playing a lot of sports, and you know, still enjoy playing, so to affiliate it with the beginning of a football season, or basketball season. You know, the amount of buzz that goes on worldwide. First of all, you've got new beginnings. That falls in line with the listeners who have been around for awhile, and are familiar with the work. And for the new [listeners], a refreshing journey."
