Recruiting Chicago’s Thelonious Martin, Kadeem returns to the Graduation Music site today with his first single of 2019 — a hypnotic, well-sculptured track titled “Wide Margins”. This release serves as yet another marvelous Hip-Hop offering to come out of the state of Massachusetts this year, with Kadeem only furthering the narrative that our state is home to a plethora of talent.
The Mattapan native has been featured on Graduation Music a countless amount of times — with each one of his releases being endlessly-playable, layered pieces of work that circulate around Kadeem’s human experience. He has a way of making his raps appear effortless at times, however each syllable he utters holds a vast amount of weight:
“N*ggas on the road to riches in the sidecar // Baggies in the stomach, while you n*ggas swallow Tide Pods, the difference too wide apart”Kadeem – “Wide Margins”
Thelonious Martin’s production here is a perfect fit for Kadeem, as he mixes his polished raps with unpredictable flows to concoct a truly outstanding release. If you haven’t yet, be sure to dive into Kadeem’s discography as he’s gearing up to have an impressive 2019.
