Today we have the exclusive premiere
of a brand new leak track from St. Louis vet, Black Spade.
“Spand” finds Stoney Rock himself using the Knxwledge beat by the same name
(from last year’s self-released Komposure.EP)
as the springboard for a lament on the struggle of his upbringing
& how it still effects his everyday life,
as he reflects on the calm before a long summer ahead -
one already “reeking of drama.”
W/ still much to look fwd to before said summer,
Spade promises that “Spand” is the first in a new series of leaks still to come,
intended for fans to be able to compile their own mixtape at the end of the run,
as he is no longer making his own after 2010′s Build & Destroy -
all leading up to Black’s longawaited official sophomore album,
the follow up to the personal classic, 2008′s To Serve With Love.
Given the official thumbs up from Knxwledge for use of the track,
this is just the first in a few very exciting collaborations Knx has in store for 2012.
We’ve been sworn to secrecy regarding the details of his next move,
but stay tuned for some big news on that front in the coming weeks.
In the meantime, you can download “Spand” below -
& as a bonus, you can catch two videos of Black Spade
from his feature in Converse’s Rubber Tracks campaign,
showing him in the same studio which “Spand” was recorded at.
