Today, I’m back at early rising to write up one of my favorite artists out right now. If you aren’t familiar with Dirty Sanchez this is the perfect time to tap in. The co-founder of The Progressive Era otherwise known as Pro Era made his way onto my playlist in my junior year of high school. This story is so nutritionally dense that it would be a full on reach to try and unpack it all for you here today, but it’s worth mentioning that this man is embedded in the foundation of our generation and his music has held me through some of my toughest moments. 

So beeeeeam lets get started! Dirty Sanchez just released his newest body of art titled GODSPEED.Im definitely biased but this project has a stacked line up of features from the legendary Chuck Strangers to up and coming artists such as Ted Park, Lou From Paradise with the bars, Pomer, and myself! The entire project is produced by NYC producer J Hart. This wasn’t their first run together as they already have one Album out called “Sorry For The Troubles,” So it was no surprise to me how effortless their chemistry was on this album. Starting off with “Never Sold My Soul” we get a new sound from Dirty with production that Immediately hooks the listener. He starts it off straight to the point “It feel like they only love you if you go and sell your soul.” Dirty has been independent from the jump.

It takes a different level of dedication/presence to do it all yourself. “Shout out the label that’s mi.” As difficult as it is to stay afloat independently in this industry, Dirty has held strong through the test of time, as he not only does music but also frequently puts out new merch for all his true supporters. The hustle never stops w the pros. But back to the heaters tho. The next record is “Roll The Dice” Featuring Chuck Strangers. Instantly you are met with this classic sounding vocal sample fresh on the ears. This song has galactic casino vibes tipping us off that life is a gamble but that doesn’t stop the pros from taking the risk and winning big. Of course Chuck blessed this record easily one of the dopest out bar for bar right now and this track is actually the first song on dsps with Dirty and chuck so thats fucking dope.

Next up we got Breathe. This song is special. Dirty unpacked a lot lyrically on this, ringing true to the times. “They don’t give us time to grieve no more.” A bar that will connect with almost everyone across the board. We are so busy these days that we forget to breathe and sitting down to breathe goes hand and hand with processing grief. I just love how that came together. I was blessed to get on this record. It wasn’t originally in his plans but he had sent it to mi and there was some space at the end so I gave my hand at a verse while taking an NYC train down to link with him at the studio where I showed him the verse and he was like nah cut that. The rest is history.

Moving on to the next record “Glisten” definitely lifting up the mood with the production, Dirty comes in fresh “I been doing swell b*#$% can’t you tell b*#$%” gotta let these hoes know some times you heard. Ted Park bodied his spot on this. Over all blapper. Now this next one is my fav right now. “Never coming down.” Bro definitely got flexually active on this hands down one of my fav dirty verses ever with Lou From Paradise as the perfect addition lacing up the second verse w strong flows cutting up on everybody. Major Heater.. This last record is so reminiscent of early pro era for mi. the beat takes mi away.

Seriously hats off to that man J Hart. One bar that really sticks out to mi is “moving towards the pain makes the pleasure feel better.” Very relatable. It seems more uncomfortable I am the more progress Im making in this life. So it speaks to mi like embrace the pain and create those positive checkpoints from it. Something to smile back on one day later in life. Whether it be songs, paintings, pictures you name it when we express ourselves we alchemize our pain and I believe whole heartedly that in doing that we make more space for the blessings in our lives.

Overall, I’m super grateful this Album is out. Humbled and grateful to be a part of it. Make sure you go tap in and run this one front to back for a real 47 legend.
