The past 24 hours I’ve been asking the internet, who is Black Spade? – this incredibly dope producer and lyricist. He seems to have several aliases: Black Spade, Veto Money, and Stoney Rock. From what I can gather, he was part of the group Soul Tyde and Hawthorne Headhunters, but I wouldn’t be surprised if there were others.
I discovered Black Spade yesterday when Donwill (of Tanya Morgan) posted Spade’s new track This Time Tomorrow on SoundCloud (track below). Donwill doesn’t post often, so I took notice. Thank gawd I did.
Black Spade is a great lyricist, but what stood out to me are his f*cking amazing production skills. I put together a playlist of Black Spade songs, most are features. It includes a couple of songs with Blu.
Check out his 2010 album Build & DESTROY on Band Camp:
