Sadat X has spent the last two years preparing an album a whole generation of Hip-Hop fans have been waiting for. NEVER LEFT is a project that celebrates Sadat X' illustrious 25 year career and serves as a testament to New York City's continued ability to fit in today's musical landscape.
The result is a cohesive collection of songs, that avoids the tendency many older artists have to overly criticize or attempt to emulate what the "kids" are doing. Instead, NEVER LEFT is simply a well-crafted Adult Contemporary Hip-Hop album, perhaps the first of it's kind to fit perfectly into today's landscape without losing site of it's audience.
NEVER LEFT captures the feeling of New York's Golden Era, carried forward 25 years by a man who has lived the culture to the fullest. Along the way, Sadat stays in pocket with notable features by contemporaries like Black Rob, Craig G, King T, Dres, Chi Ali & Fokis, who lend their vocals to the reggae inspired "Put It On Me," and Cormega, who appears on the project's first official single "On Fire." Sadat also recruits one of the leaders of New York's next generation of true MCs, Skyzoo on the project, as well as newcomer Tony Mays, who won the opportunity to contribute to this project through an online contest presented by Loyalty Digital Corp. The album is available on iTunes, Google Play, Amazon, Bandcamp, Spotify & all other digital retailers. The album is also available on Compact Disc Here
What would happen if you mixed Television Theme songs with a bunch of hungry artists & producers? Well, you would get a new EP of course called CHANGE THE CHANNEL. Local-Mu12 is a collective of talented artists & producers from around the world, founded by Fokis in 2012. Their Debut album LABOR DAY was featured on XXL, Complex, TheSource, OnSmash and many other publications. Today the collective lets loose a Free EP that is conceptual and entertaining. "It's a breath of fresh air, a project meant to entertain and satisfy the listener who is tired of the same old thing" - Fokis. The project features some of Local-Mu12' past members but also includes some new ones. Zebulon who resides in Ohio, is a red headed spitting machine, Jay Crenshaw out of VA is the sharp lyrical type & Zerry Ziggz of CO has that stoner, Bone Thugs n Harmony feel to him. Mix it all together and you get pure freshness in the form of a new EP. Now sit back, relax and enjoy the show.

“I’m an artist, producer plus an engineer, been grinding with this music way more than a couple years” says Fokis on his new single “Produced By Dr. Dre”. Produced by Fokeezy, (Fokis' name as a producer) the single is off his upcoming EP “Underground With Commercial Appeal” slated for release 2/3/15. In case you're not familiar with Fokis, let’s bring you up to speed. Fokis is an emcee / producer who has collaborated with artists such as Joe Budden, Joell Ortiz, Mistah F.A.B., Olu Dara (Nas’ father) & more. He’s worked with producers such as Ty Fyffe, Focus…, Fantom Of The Beat and Jake One. Fokis released various projects including the “20/20” EP (produced entirely by Focus…), “The Appetizer” LP with Punchline (formerly of eMC) & “A Vintage State Of Mind” mixtape. He runs an indie label, Loyalty Digital Corp., which executive produced projects such as “An Ode To Reasonable Doubt” by Skyzoo & Antman Wonder, “Barrel Brothers” by Skyzoo & Torae and Sadat X’ upcoming album “Never Left”. He’s also an engineer who has recorded & mixed for Slaughterhouse, Fat Joe, N.O.R.E, Pharoahe Monch, Bun B, Kool G Rap, to name a few. While it may have seemed that Fokis took a hiatus from the rap world, he's actually spent the last few years hard at work. “I took some time away from the creating of music so that I could focus on building my company as well as engineer for other artists. I kind of lost the passion for creating music so instead of trying to force things, I just stepped back to help others. I used to want to make music to be rich and famous, now I do it because I am inspired and it feels fun again” - Fokis. The new single is available for streaming on Spotify or purchase on iTunes, Google Play, Amazon and all other digital retailers.
