With his first solo album, Wild Cowboys, Sadat X continues the jazz-hip-hop fusion that distinguished Brand Nubian's body of work. But the difference between Wild Cowboys and Nubian's latter-day records Everything is Everything and In God We Trust is the approach. As a solo artist, Sadat X is looser and more relaxed, letting the groove flow and casually demonstrating his verbal vacility. With a first-class prodcution crew -- including Pete Rock, Beatminerz, Diamond D, Buckwild, and Alamo -- Sadat X has created a fun, laid-back album in Wild Cowboys that nearly manages to equal the studied intensity of Brand Nubian with its non-chalant virtuosity.
