Dag Savage - Cali Dreaming

Dag Savage is a Calironia based group consisting of MC Johaz and producer Exile.

Exile is a busy man. This guy consistently puts out music from some of the best "under the radar" MCs. This is the same Exile behind Blu & Exile, Dirty Science Records, and even way back in the day (circa 1995-2005) a member of the group Emanon, which featured a rapping Aloe Blacc.

So, fresh off the second album from Blu & Exile, Give Me My Flowers While I Can Still Smell Them, Exile headed back into the studio to work with Johaz on the Dag Savage project. The result was a mixtape and an official 4-track EP, Cali Dreaming.

The title track features up and coming Cali MCs Fashawn and Co$$ and...wait...is that Tiombe Lockhart singing? Yes! Tiombe Lockhart of The Platinum Pied Pipers and Cubic Zirconia makes a guest appearance as well.

What I like most about this track is that in this era of flash, pizazz, and trap, this is just straight forward hip-hop. A solid simple beat and lyrics that convey stories about life.

Well done Dag Savage. Well done.
