Isaiah Rashad’s debut studio album, The Sun’s Tirade, is finaly available to stream and download! The project's 17 tracks host contributions from label-mates Kendrick Lamar, SZA and Jay Rock, in addition to a few others who are featured.
The Top Dawg Entertainment rapper is a favorite of ours and has been mostly quiet for the past couple years. Although he has built a diehard fanbase, the talented artist hasn’t quite broken out on his own yet, so we recently highlighted his career path with a catch up guide.
His 2014 debut mixtape Cilvia Demo established a signature sound combining smooth rhyming with a touch of southern bounce that earned him high praise and a dedicated following. Fans have been anxiously awaiting the project following TDE stating the album was finished and would arrive soon, but then it seemed to take a while before we heard more updates on the LP.
During the two and a half years in between full length projects, Isaiah developed and kicked a drug and alcohol habit that almost resulted in being dropped from the label. The label told Isaiah they would not release his music until he cleaned up his act, and thankfully he’s doing much better now. His return was worth the wait as he shines on The Sun’s Tirade.
After a few listens, the LP builds on the hazey sound we’ve come to love from Isaiah. Each song seems to cultivate a warm feeling as most tracks deliver buttery smooth, atmospheric production for the relaxed, melodic raps and singing to lay atop. Stream below and enjoy!
