Master P [arguably] helped the southern hip-hop scene (specifically the NO) go mainstream, Mac Miller and Wiz Khalifa contributed to making Pittsburgh a viable name in the game, and Drake pretty much made “the 6” a thing — literally. We’re kind of sure he coined the term. Now, rapper Sain, who was born in Miami, is hoping to do the same for Dubai, the man-made paradise in the United Arab Emirates. With achievements that include nailing sponsorship deals with brands such as Casio’s G-Shock and Marc Ecko’s once coveted clothing brand, and sharing the stage with Missy Elliot, Cee Lo Green, Akon, and many more, Sain (pronounced Sane) is on his way.
His latest release, the remix to his record “They Don’t Know,” is at one a comment on his endless grind, and a universal anthem for persevering. A single from his upcoming LP Chapters, due out this season, the song (which features Eazi Money) could quickly become a summer banger. Take an ear for yourself — and if you’re feeling it, add him up.
