Sapient – Gunwings (Album)

blame it on Shake February 21, 2012

The Portland native dropped a few videos leading up to this release that I somehow missed (check them here), but that doesn’t mean I can’t be on time with Gunwings haha. A complete revision of 2010’s Barrels For Feathers, Sapient puts a new life into each song. New beats, hooks and melodies are sung differently, new verses, new features and more.

  • #hiphop dope album… loving the redux

  • who cares

    Album is dope as fuck. On my third listen so far. While I loved “Barrels For Feathers” this definitely outdoes it. Kind of feels like this should have been the original album.

  • Mark


    Sapient makes some of the most inspiring music I’ve ever heard, in any genre. My favorite hip hop artist/musician in general, for the past 6 years. Hope he gets the recognition he deserves, one day.

    Do NOT sleep on this redux, and if you missed the original album it’s a must hear too, though I could say the same for Sape’s entire (extensive) discography… Wake the fuck up.

  • Matt

    Absolutely amazing! As someone said, “You get a dope new album with the benefit of knowing the lyrics.” Immediately gets you right into the album and able to focus more on what’s new. Still takes multiple play throughs to appreciate it all though!

  • valence

    These comments have got to be fakes. Matt, Mark, and Aaron? This shit is mediocre at best.

  • JOhn

    Sape never lets down…Dope.
