” 2018 Newness “
By now I’m quite sure you know what your in store for when you peep a THIRD SIGHT project : insane rhyme patterns, morbid tales of killings and murder, battle raps, lo fi beats, and all types of off-kilter shit with a San Jose Hip Hop sensibility…..Truth be told JIHAD has mastered his lane for a few decades at this point, and on his latest release the “Red Herring” mixtape he keeps his brand of originality on full blast mode….
JIHAD gives a nice glimpse into the making of this album on the WITZARD website (Beats, Lyrics, Cuts, & the Inside Story)…
“Red Herring is made up of tracks I recorded between 2008-12; production duties are held down by Mr. Aeks, Du-Funk, Drumboy, and Maestro Gamin. The cuts were performed by DJ Vandal from The Netherlands and there are two guest emcees: Maestro Gamin & Drew Fairweather (Crudbump.) The tracks were languishing on my desktop, until Awkward offered to master them. He mastered Orchids & Corpses (2016) the same way. He also, did tracks for Third Sight’s IV. In addition, he is remixing a narrative/comic book album, The Red Sentence, for me.”
