West appropriately meets east on this new Planet Asia cut, “No Apologies.” The Fresno rapper teams up with Wu-Tang Clan’s Raekwon to spit fully fleshed bars over a horn-splashed soul beat put together by Oxnard, Calif. native Oh No. The track is off Asia’s new Black Belt Theatre album, which drops tomorrow, Feb. 28. Inspired by blaxpoitation flicks of the early ’70s, BBT will feature talent from both coasts, including (but not limited to) Talib Kweli, Strong Arm Steady, Mistah FAB, Camp Lo, Ras Kass and Paul Wall.
On “No Apologies,” Asia and Rae paint signature criminal fantasies–which you’ve likely heard before. Here, though, they’re given an altogether different twist thanks to Oh No’s perfectly sunny production. Look for the release tomorrow, and stream/download the track below.
