Last we heard from Saheed, on May 2011 album inclusion Peace & Quiet, he was longing for a respite from the constant pressures of the hustle. While we in The DJBooth missed him, that year-and-a-half away from our pages seems to have done wonders for the Hialeah, Florida repper’s mood. I Go On, the lead single off his forthcoming collaborative set with Panhandle State beatsmith Numonics, finds him feeling fresh, rejuvenated and ready to do whatever it takes to conquer the industry. Over his partner’s head-noddable sample work (accented by cuts from DJ Heron), the emcee admits that his drive to succeed is so strong, it’s making him a little manic: “I can’t stay in one place, yo I gotta move my feet… don’t wanna eat or speak, I shoulda got a little sleep.” Now that Saheed’s back, are you craving more fresh tunes? Then don’t touch that dial; we’ll keep you supplied with the latest song releases leading up to the as yet unscheduled arrival of Not for Nothing.
