Them Kuwaiti boys are really rocking it early in 2020!! They have already released "SONS OF YUSUF & SHAFIQ HUSAYN" EP IN NOV'19 and released 2 tracks from their upcoming album "Shaykh The World" coming out in the next 7-10 days!
On Jan 31st,2020, the duo dropped a track that features non-other than Jay Electronica ! and man oh man! Loved it! Jay's verse on it just fire! Sons Of Yusuf are once again proving that they are really building that bridge between East & West and connecting us more through Hip-Hop, I believe more people in the Middle-East needs to know about Jay!
I got Sons Of Yusuf on Buckle Up earlier today and they spoke about that collabo..."We connected with Jay Electronica back in 2007... now we have a record wit him.." Ya'koob told me...
Their Buckle Up Episode will be out by next week!
The song is titled "Diving For Pearls" and he went on and said ...
"Our grandfather was a pearl diver, and that's how people used to provide for their families in Kuwait, he's away at sea for 6 months, his family wouldn't even know if he's dead or alive until he comes back.."
They wanted to honor the pearl divers...and at the same time get the East/West bridge..."he's a real one, he's not driven by money..." Humble Abdul said of Jay Electronica
Song is produced by MikeChav who is a regular collaborator with Jay Electronica, his sound engineer, a dope producer and a Hip-Hop legend!
Big up Sons Of Yusuf, to have Arab MC's collaborate with an artist like Jay Electronica, that says a lot! Best of luck to the brothers!
