Emay – Yesu

We’ve been loving Mubarik Adams aka Emay‘s debut album Ilah since it was released in February, and it’s even a better listen in the summer. A remarkably dense work, Ilah is full of boundless ideas both production-wise and lyrical, with the Hamilton rapper unafraid to get political, theoretical, or prophetic. It’s also a deeply meditative listen, that gets to the heart of identity from many angles while maintaining a focus on justice and social change. “Yesu”, featuring Rae and L-SPEX, may be one of the clear highlights of the record, but these songs aren’t meant to be heard in isolation.

Ilah is available now PWYW from Bandcamp.
