After the reception of "Battle Anybody" from luminaries like DJ Premier, DJ Evil Dee, DJ Eclipse and more, Dawhud and Ace-One started working on a proper follow up to their emceeing anthem. One track turned into an EP which then quickly turned into a full length project. The project...D&G (David & Goliath) - The Scepter & The Sword.
The concept for the group simply came from Dawhud's name (David in Arabic) and Ace-One, who was in the midst of finishing up his Rapmonster series. Those two elements and the sheer chest pounding vibe of their prior track led to the creation of David & Goliath. Epic, biblical, and loaded with imagery that paints what the duo are trying to convey in just a name.
Produced entirely by Dawhud, the duo trade verses over his landscapes to join forces and reign together. From the opening battle cry of "Something's Coming" to the closing of their Premier approved track, The Scepter & The Sword is a rap Odyssey. Assisting the duo on this legendary journey are emcees like Masta Ace, Rock (from Heltah Skeltah), Sadat X, Kokane and Pacewon alongside longtime friends/emcees Joe Harvey, JO and Otomatik. With a title like David & Goliath... legends should be involved!
