Saga - The Warrior (prod Quincey Tones)

To say the least, Saga has had one hell of a 2016 so far. In addition to dropping a series of killer and stylistically fresh joints (“If We,” “What You Want,” and “Up”), the Brooklyn rapper just got back from a 17-city tour of Europe where he opened for Asher Roth. Saga was also working on and debuting new material, like his latest banger “The Warrior,” that had the crowd going crazy everywhere he went.

You can blame the hook of “The Warrior” for that, as it’s inherently made for live stages and audience interaction. Sure enough, the EU crowds were chanting the chorus right alongside Saga, who pays homage (and compares himself to) to mental and physical warriors throughout the track.

From calling himself “a modern-day Shogun” who’s a “strategist like Sun Tzu” to shouting out the likes of Tesla and da Vinci, the Bk emcee covers all the bases while demonstrating that he’s easily one of the year’s finest rising talents. It only helps that dude has a great ear for beats, with this slapper produced by London’s Quincey Tones.

The Warrior” is now available for both stream and download through all major digital retailers, and is not affiliated with any forthcoming projects or releases from Saga.
