Rising experimental-rap artist Sage One The Wise vividly explores the highs and lows of the many vices we all struggle with today on “New Drugs,” his brand-new single featuring West Coast hip-hop veteran Ariano.
Given their like-minded outside-the-box approaches to music, this collaboration makes sense on paper and also totally delivers in its final form. Fresh off a rewarding 2016 featuring the release of his Love Is Not Lazy project, Ariano (who also produced this track) remains rejuvenated and in prime form on “New Drugs” alongside his youthful counterpart.
And while he may be younger, Orange County, Calif. Native Sage is no newcomer to the culture. He’s been b-boying since age nine and has dropped a number of successful projects, including his genre-bending 2015 effort, The Oldies But Goodies Collection. He’s also wise beyond his years, which he uses to his advantage while lyrically investigating the track’s subject matter. It makes for a listen that’s equally heady and addictive (no pun intended), and a single that’s bound to bring the kid even more attention this year as he gears up to release his debut album, The Sage Project.
“New Drugs” is now available for stream and download through all major digital retailers and streaming platforms via Popular Nobody LLC.
