Adam Tensta – What The Kids Do (vs. M.I.A. – 92)
If you’ve been reading the site for a while, you know that I think that both Wale and Adam Tensta are the biggest two things in hip-hop right now. Tensta, the Swedish rapper, dropped one of the best hip-hop albums of the past few years in Its A Tensta Thing and Wale is set to blow in 2009 with his Interscope produced album, bringing in such diverse producers as Cool & Dre and TV On the Radio.
So I shouldn’t be surprised when these two hip-hop innovators connected in a studio in LA this week during a session with Cali producers The Glitch Mob. Not much is known of what came out of it, but Wale confirmed to me via Twitter that a collaboration is definately taking place soon.
Speaking of Tensta and Mid-Atlantic connections, check his freestyle over M.I.A.’s B-More cut as well.
Big ups to Sir David Husselhoff and the Swedish crew at My Best Friend Is My Grind.
