The Milwaukee marauder, Taiyamo Denku, continues powering forward campaigning his recently released LP, “No Industry Standard”. Side by side with fellow producer cohort Dcypha, the pair continue delivering nothing but high quality Hip Hop. Enter the third single from said album, “Still Waiting”, featuring highly compelling jewels shared by Griselda Records own, Benny The Butcher.
The song begins with a sick piano melody that gets split by soulful horn and vocal samples. Denku sets up the record’s concept with a short introduction that rides into the chorus that states, “no matter how things get, they still waiting for change / stages of life, sleep half of the days”. After the intital hook, Taiyamo and Benny begin assaulting the mic with brolic bars of knowledge, hoping to wake up the unknowing. “Still Waiting” is a stand out cut from “No Industry Standard” and is the second feature from the Griselda camp. The album’s lead single, “Be Who You Are”, was another super soulful clapper and featured Conway The Machine.
“No Industry Standard” has quite a few hits on it’s hands. The two aforementioned singles, “Fabulous Life” with Lil Kim, it’s title track and much more. Benny is still pumping his “A Friend Of Ours” project. A fan favorite of 2018, the project carries guest appearances by 38 Spesh, El Camino, Dark Lo, Skyzoo and others. Both albums are available to preview / purchase on Bandcamp, nice additions to add to your Hip Hop collection.
