Beatnick and K-Salaam Team Up With Talib Kweli and Blu for “Fight Night”
Rapping over funky horns and crisp drums, Talib kicks off the track by showcasing his skill when he raps, "Put other purchases in hearses/Kill the murder rate/Life of the party, go home and murk the tape."
Blu follows up the legendary Kweli, spitting, "You niggas is Tom Cruise with your mission, nothing's impossible/I cruise through my mission, just to screw your prediction/B-L Rubik's Cube with the vision/Spit out a prism."
Hailing from Minnesota, Beatnick & K-Salaam come from two different backgrounds. Beatnick got his start in the jazz scene while K-Salaam was a DJ for the RhymeSayers record label. The two eventually linked up and decided to move to New York where they started working with Nas, Smif N Wessun, Bun B, Murs, Fashawn and Yasiin Bey.
In August, the duo dropped off another single from the album called "Movin' It." On that track, Beatnick & K-Salaam collaborated with Wrekonize and Tech N9ne.
The Bluest Flame is set to release on Oct. 13 and will include guest appearances from Kirk Knight, Bun B, Young Buck, Joell Ortiz, Adrian and more. The album will also include another remix of "Fight Night," as well as two versions of the song "I'm Gone." C
