U.G. (of Cella Dwellas) Drops 1st Leak, "The Mystic" Off Debut Solo LP

CW Music 3:58 PM


After years of work and several delays, Brooklyn rapper U.G. (of the acclaimed duo, Cella Dwellas) is ready to drop his debut solo album, Portals. But before the full project arrives, he’s delivered a mission statement of sorts with the lead single, “The Mystic” which will please longtime fans, and introduce newcomers to one of rap’s most unique voices.

U.G.’s distinct approach to his artform is heard almost immediately, as the beat supplied by IDE creeps and looms beneath his vocals. The BK spitter attacks it with precision and prowess like only he can: “Listen/ I bang my chest like a bongo/ Congo/ Push rocks like Rondo/ Arms throw/ Combos/ F*ck up your whole ensemble.” And when he gets to the hook to proclaim, “My sh*t sound like nothin’ else you ever heard,” it’s pretty much impossible to disagree.

Given that it’s been a minute since we’ve heard from the Cella Dwellas, it’s safe to say that Portals is not just long overdue, but also one of the more anticipated projects of the year. We know you’ll agree once you get to hear it yourself when it drops in October.

“The Mystic” is now available for stream, and can be downloaded off the iTunes pre-order link for Portals, as the project’s debut instant-grat track. Portals, which includes guest features from the likes of Celph Titled, Mista Sinista, Life Long, Necro and more, hits all major digital retailers and streaming outlets on October 21, via Creative Juices Music.
