MP3 Exclusive: Dagha

Dagha and Edan

That dude Edan has been shouting out Dagha's solo material for a minute, and before that the Humble Magnificent was a vocal supporter of D's old supergroup Electric -- a/k/a Electric Company -- even shouting them out in a Phoenix top-5 list about a year ago. Dagha -- Dwayne Simmons to his moms -- has a long resume in groups that get no respect from douchebag indie-rap kids, but some of those limpdicks know him anyway thanks to his verse on "Rock and Roll," that stand-out, lysergic-guitar-blasting psychedelic smash on Edan's recent Beauty and the Beat. Now D's got his own joint: the solo debut, Object In Motion, teams him with production and guest verses by his old Electric Company mate Insight (with whom he also founded Knights of the Roundtable, a Dorchester group who briefly included a young Mr. Lif). Insight's been stacking paper in Germany, but he's coming back to Boston with Dagha and the Project Move dudes (Moe Pope, Mike Anonymous, and Raheem) for an Electric Company reunion at the Paradise Lounge Sunday night (November 27). Insight also makes a cameo on the Dagha solo track below, which is sort of like -- apologies to Gary Glitter -- "Rock and Roll" Part 2. And we mean that in the best fucking possible way. If we were in the paper right now we'd try to wax lyrically about how hot the record is and everything, but since we got the mpfree, we're gonna shut up and get straight to the audio. Killing you . . . now:
