Sinister – 4th Quarter (Prod. Young K)‏‎ [Audio]

Toronto, ON – Toronto-based MC Sinister just hit us with his latest single, “4th Quarter,” off his forthcoming LP entitled The BarFather. Just so you know, the concept and cover art for The BarFather are totals spinoffs of The Godfather. Eeeps!

Sinister comes in on a Young K-produced beat and brings a solid dose of old school-influence into the mix. Sinister uses this track to parallel the rap game with basketball. We’re given a soundbite from the sixth game of the ’98 NBA finals (Utah Jazz versus Chicago Bulls). This was Michael Jordan’s final game with the Bulls. And the fourth quarter was too much to handle. With only seconds remaining in the game, Jordan scored a layup that just put the Bulls in the lead by one point. The Bulls won. Ish was crazy. Anyways, the fourth quarter is the most intensive and deciding part of the basketball game. The fourth quarter is survival of the fittest.

The fourth quarter decides on one winner and one loser (you know – unless OT happens). If we’re putting this into the context of the rap game, Sinister is putting himself into that final round. He’s been on hiatus for a few years, but he definitely wasn’t sleeping. He’s got a new project cooking up. He’s got this new-wave old school flow. And he’s getting into the game. Check the new audio after the jump.
