Smino & Saba – Plead the .45th

Smino & Saba’s soulful new collab is their contribution to the Judas and the Black Messiah soundtrack, a new film based on the life of Black Panther head Fred Hampton and his death as a result of FBI informant William O’ Neal. The accompanying album Judas And The Black Messiah: The Inspired Album includes 22 tracks from artists like H.E.R., Nas, Hit-Boy, Black Thought, Nipsey Hussle, JAY-Z, JID, BJ The Chicago Kid, A$AP Rocky etc, etc, and – perhaps unsurprisingly given the calibre of that list – is well worth a listen.
