Washington D.C.-bred, California-based rapper/producer Fong-Sai-U presents his self-produced new single ‘Time’s Up’, a tribute to Brooklyn rapper O.C.’s classic track of the same name. ‘Time’s Up’ will appear on ‘The Last Ronin’, his forthcoming album dropping October 14th on Soulspazm.
‘Time’s Up’ is his first release since the drop of ‘Ballads Of A Massacre‘, his album featuring the late Guru of Gang Starr, Dice Raw and Buddha Monk. Videos have been dropped for BOAM singles ‘Jack Sparrow’ (watch) and ‘Bad Guy’ (watch). An underground hip-hop veteran, Fong has collaborated with Black Thought (click to stream ‘I Own This Microphone’) who was an early mentor to Fong and took him on tour with The Roots. Fong also produced a song for Guru of Gang Starr on his solo album Bald Head Slick under his given name Divine (click to stream ‘O.G. Talk’).
In 2011 Soulspazm Records released Fong’s album A Soldier’s Story (click for info) which featured Raheem DeVaughn and Res.
“‘I felt that in the climate of rap music today it was time for a new ‘Time’s Up’ for this generation with a 2015 spin on it,” says Fong. “That’s why I started and ended my verses like O.C. did. Don’t get me wrong, I still bump the old one… Enjoy”.
