It is so much a statement of fact these days as to be almost old hat already, but there is a revolution going on in rap music on the West Coast, and a generation of artists and producers who are shaking the game to their foundations and building it up again on some futuristically incredible bricks and mortar. One of the key figures in this movement, the cement to the building blocks, is producer, rapper, multi-instrumentalist and CREEZ prophet Polyester The Saint. Aka Polyester. Aka Poly.
You’ll already know his production work with Dom Kennedy, Pac Div, Casey Veggies, Blu, U-N-I, Skeme, to name but a few. And that is before we get to Bay legends Too Short and E-40, electro-soul masters J*Davey, Sa-Ra, Marz Lovejoy. The list goes on and on. Poly is on some future soul and hip-hop flex, giving a west coast mix to an Andre 3000 style eclecticism, but making it sound like his own style distinctly.
To top it all off the man has style and charisma to go, one of the soundest people we know, and always coming fresh. Poly's first single as a solo artist was called "Ask, Believe, Receive." We applied that the The Twelve of course, and like his fresh mixtape, we got the Real Deal P in response.
