Sankofa, Serf - Sonny Kovah

This album is inspired by AZ, with the luxuriousness of Serf’s lush production instantly transporting me to that state of mind.

Serf posted about prepping a new beat tape, so I hit him up to let him know that if he ever wanted a random verse/track on there, I’d be happy to drop something. He then told me I’d been someone he’d been looking to work with, but I was so busy he figured he’d wait a while. The project was initially just going to be a handful of tracks, but then expanded to 11, with me calling on dope friends to contribute (JON?DOE, Jeff Spec, and G Fam Black with verses, DJ Navin Johnson with cuts), then sent it to post with my man Tali Rodriguez, the genius behind so much of what I do.

The title came about because of executive producer JS Rivera, who some may know as Royalty OGTCH’s son, having a bit of a time saying my rap name. What better way to celebrate my first executive produced album than have it unknowingly overseen/titled by a kid? Kids rule. I’m going to send a tape to his dad, because being an executive producer is a big deal.
