As proven by his latest single, “Lay Low,” Bay Area rapper SASH has a deft hand when it comes to blending bravado with introspection to create tracks that bang but also make you think.
The release of “Lay Low” arrives several months after his most recent project, Black Caviar, which made waves this summer with a number of standouts, including “Make Her Say” and “Mona Lisa.” And like those cuts, this track excels in its presentation of sharp lyricism and bouncy production, the latter of which comes from TraxxFDR. In addition to working with SASH, the rising producer has collaborated with the likes of Wiz Khalifa and Berner.
There are plenty of bars worth quoting on the relationship-centric “Lay Low,” but SASH really hits his mark when spitting: “Gas on the throttle, I know I’m out here just getting by/ I’m in the city with different hoes, and I’m getting high/ I need your love, it’s the only thing that keeps me alive.” Rhymes like these further accentuate his talents as an emcee, while the sing-song hook shows that the kid is clearly honing his songwriting craft. Keep an eye on him moving into 2017.
“Lay Low” is now available for stream, and can be purchased through iTunes and all major digital retailers. And if his previously released project, Black Caviar has yet to bleep on your radar, then head over to SoundCloud and check it
