Säge, The 64th Wonder Slash Hierophant: Artist of the Week

Adding an air of mystery to his already peculiar persona, Säge, The 64th Wonder interprets the sacred and esoteric with his latest LP release. As if his mask does not do the job, HIEROPHANT gives the 64th Wonder another layer of mystic energy. The album contains 8 tracks of boom bap type beats with lyric heavy verses and features from Kyd Wahlee, Sleep Sinatra and SHINTENTO64. Fans have had early previews of HIEROPHANT with early releases of its singles like SPOON BENDER, TALKING SHOES and EASY BAKE, with an accompanying music video. The project in all is a whole ‘nother level of hip hop that is refreshing, lyrically and sonically, to the Chicago pot of artists.

Casually strolling onto the mic acknowledging some time passing, with the confidence of a living legend, and the knowledge that he is about to rock the mic, as if he had to remind the Chi who is king! BASURA features Kyd Wahlee spittin over a steady, simple and dark beat, that emphasizes the boths artists lyrics and energy. Though the LP was teased with earlier releases, BASURA sets the tone for the tracks to follow. ENTER THE 64TH WONDER sets the bar lyrically, his flow so smooth through a cool, calm and collected attitude, but sharp with his words. HIEROPHANT thus far carries an aloofness, almost comical atmosphere, with background chatter on the beat as if in the middle of a broadcasted variety show into SPOON BENDER.

The remainder of HIEROPHANT takes it back down to earth with EASY BAKE and onward, the music video for the track takes on a raw urban vibe, while Säge humbly brags about his lyrical skill compared to the childish easy bake talent of others. TALKING SHOES takes it deep into Säge’s thoughts and actions, it seems Säge can turn any thought into poetry, and every thought seems to bear significance. However he raps, “I’m not here to preach I’m just speaking with my hood…” All together this LP takes you back to classic hip hop vibe, production focused on the beat, emphasizing the lyrics that are raw and laced with natural wisdom. So much wisdom an instrumental track in ALLIUM had to be introduced to give your mind a breather. A sick followup to THE GODS HERE ARE STUPID LP, you are going to catch yourself putting HIEROPHANT on repeat!

Säge, The 64th Wonder Passing Time With Seismic Boog

Reminding us that he is a formidable contender of hip hop and he can just brush it off while others bust a sweat. Säge, The 64th Wonder, visual artist and hip hop emcee, comes back with more new tunes. Serving up lyrical quakes with consistence, SEISMIC BOOG (freeverse) is his most recent to pass the time with! Picking up on his activity as he prepares to release his album NO SAD SHIT, JUST RAPS, following up from teasing some singles from the project.

Calling out you, me, and the whole room out from the start on SEISMIC BOOG (freeverse)Okay you say that you are next, so why are you distressed? I guess I called your bluff, cause every thing I’ve heard is just…” Such a bold tongue, you would think Seji has 20,000 ANGELS over him. Released on the 1st of February, 20,000 ANGELS is the second single from his new LP, following NAHGATO. Dropping lyrics like, “Im best at morphine words, ya’ll can’t contest, I told them oncee that i was the dude, ya’ll thought I’d slow up, but my blow up’s on the horizon.” He really is done from taking “a break just to clear the lane.”

Säge the 64th Wonder Never Left, You Weren’t Paying Attention

When ge The 64th Wonder aka Seji,aka Shintendo is seemingly quiet in the rap/hip hop scene in terms of music, in actuality he never stopped releasing, producing and creating content. Namely his commissions of his unique animated art style that the Chicago scene and beyond cannot quite get enough of. It feels as though when ge gets bored or anxious, as all genius multi talented artists do, he jumps back into the rap arena and shows why he is been a staple of Chicago hip hop since 2012. But he was making waves even two years prior to that because of his skill and technicality off the jump and having a team of emcees and artists surrounding him, if you remember The Terra Godz.

You cannot cast Säge as just indie, hip hop, nerd core or anime rap. He is so much more than that considering he actually embodies a large part of the East Asian culture being a visual artist himself. He clearly studies and consumes the culture to a high degree. He is a fusion of a lot of things that really get fleshed out if you can actually go through his entire catalog. Säge has gone through numerous re-brandings and some classics that might not be available to listen to right now. Do not fret however since he is re-releasing some oldies quite soon as well as an album of brand new music in February.

Until then ponder, soak and absorb this. “Damn, will they ever play me for the masses?” Asks ge to an alternate version of himself, something like a conscience which in turn responds (using a higher shifted pitched voice) “Even if they don’t, I still feel you make the classics, still think you’re greater than the greatest in this rap shit, is that a question you’re asking? We’re passed this, Just pass this blunt.” Säge the 64th Wonder, the flagship leader of SlumpGang777, will have some amazing pieces to look forward to in 2020.
