“Never give a finesser the chance to finesse, you gon loose everything”
Supa Bwe is about to release his next project, Down Comes The Spaceman, and gives us a taste of what’s to come with two new singles, “Brujería” and “Hella Shields (Clear Skies).” He collaborated with Shepard Hues on production for “Brujería,” it’s an intense, haunting beat that perfectly fits Supa’s words of warning. He claims to not practice brujería (Spanish for witchcraft), although I’m not sure I believe him, his music casts spells.
“It’s gon be alright
Baby live your life”
“Hella Shields (Clear Skies)” is emotional and bare, Supa speaks directly of pain and loss. The title of the track makes me think of one of my favorite Hurt Everybody songs, Hella Ligtning/Hella Swords, though the tone of “Hella Shields (Clear Skies,)” is darker and finds Supa Bwe solo. Be sure to catch Supa’s first solo show in Chicago at Reggies on April 14.
