Minneapolis rapper Rocky Diamonds recruits Def Jam peer August Alsina for “I Pray,” the lead single for his new tape, The Marckus Shaw EP. It’s produced by Knucklehead—responsible for much of Alsina’s breakthrough 2013 tape The Product 2, including its transcendent single “I Luv This Shit”—and his grown-and-sexy, streetlight-bathed (and seemingly 40-influenced) sound is on point as ever here. The concise six-track release also features production from perennial hitmaker Zaytoven and 2013 all-star Dun Deal.
