Later this year, buzzmaking beatsmith and frequent Esohel collaborator Ricky Dubs will be stepping into the spotlight with a brand new solo EP. In addition to dope instrumentals, the set promises to feature some top-tier lyrical talent, as evidenced by the Partners in Rhyme he’s enlisted to spit on the project’s second single. Here, the headliner creates an atmosphere straight out of a 1940s gangster flick, layering muted horns over a smoky jazz-piano progression as Chi-town’s Add-2 trades deft, self-assured bars with Brooklyn repper Nitty Scott, MC. Señor Dubs is tentatively scheduled for release September 3. In the meantime, of course, y’all can keep it locked for the latest singles.
