Sean Links and Jamil Honesty connect for this new single titled “Grenade Pen.”
Hard-hitting drum break, dusted samples and gritty bars are all in abundance in new single “Grenade Pen.” Available via all DSP’s now, this is the first evidence of the pairing of North Carolina emcee Sean Links and Baltimore’s Jamil Honesty (acting in a producer capacity here).
This track is a pre-cursor to the Bolo Yeung LP (dropping via Blackhouse Records in digital format on 4/21 with physicals dropping 5/5) which is fully produced by Jamil Honesty (who also spits on an album track). Other guests on the album will include Josiah The Gift, Pure (Raekwon), Maze Overlay, Pro Dillinger, Substance 810 and Squeegie Oblong.
Speaking on the cook-up with Links, Jamil Honesty said “I came across his IG page and have been locked in ever since. He’s an emcee’s emcee and I believe Bolo Yeung is a masterpiece.” The forthcoming album is named for the legendary martial artist and bodybuilder whose villainy put him into direct combat with Bruce Lee in Enter The Dragon and Jean Claude Van Damme in Bloodsport.
