S.C.R.E.A.M. is a 13-track project, which highlights the versatility of the group while paying homage to their Wu-Tang Clan similarities. Each artist brings a unique perspective and technique to S.C.R.E.A.M. and when put together, everything fits like a jigsaw puzzle. The collection of emcees use a wide spectrum of production crossing decades on the mixtape such as “Fly Posture” (produced by GREAT and Deb.On.Air) which sounds like a late 80s/early 90s version of Eric B. and Rakim, “Official”, the Madlib and J Dilla classic, and their take on “Shabba Ranks”, the trap hit from 2013.
The group’s mixtape will be released on Saturday, May 17th 2014 at the S.C.R.E.A.M. Release Party - taking place at The Mason Jar (645 James Lovell St. Milwaukee, WI 53233). The release party is for ages 21+ and begins at 9:30 PM with a $5 cover charge. Physical copies of S.C.R.E.A.M. will be available for $10 and SAFS Crew merch is available for purchase at the show as well. The mixtape is going to stream here for free online on Saturday.
