Sadat X Experience & Education
- Words: James Mayo
- Label: Female Fun
As part of Brand Nubian, Sadat laced his rhymes with enough grime to satisfy the street as well as the Zulu Nation. On this joint, he writes music for folks who grew up listening to Brand Nubian. The 9-to-5-ers and the 25-to-lifers will appreciate his testimony to survival on the DJ Spinna-produced "God is Back." With help from Diamond D ("The Great Diamond D") and Vin the Chin ("Back to New York"), Sadat reveals the gritty soul that‘s the core of Big Apple hip-hop. Overall, this everyman MC proves, as he says on "Have a Good Life", that he "can still kick a mean 16."
