“Run that check up, so extensive
My time is money baby
Yeah my time expensive”
Damn, Supa Bwe comes back to reality on the single, “Run A Check Up,” and finds that everybody is still fake. He’s spending and he’s taxing over production by himself and Shepard Hues. Supa is consistently a bold and passionate artist, I can’t wait to hear what he’s got coming with his next EP, Down Comes The Spaceman.
“Can you show me something I ain’t seen before”
Supa is collaborating with Taylor Bennett and the two released their first single, “Show Me,” on the same night as “Run A Check Up.” When I first heard that these two were in the studio, I was curious. It works. The beat, produced by Home, grooves and lays solid ground for the two artists. Supa is raw, weary and very much himself, he’s been in the game awhile and wants to see something new. He says “Every time they call my cell n****s need something, every time I hoist my sails n****s sea sick.” Taylor comes in with his polished demeanor. He adds a verse commenting on the typical day and the needs of the people that he hears from. He retains his bright energy even while rapping about tired scenarios. I hope to hear more work from this pair. Be sure to catch Supa Bwe’s first solo show in Chicago at Reggies on April 14.
