The first single “This Is War” is taken off the upcoming Adam Tensta album “The Empty” (to be released on June 24th via RMH Sound) just dropped, the album was written after a breakup and the lead single that also features the soulful vocal offerings of crooner Duvchi is a heartbreaking ode to the struggles after a past relationship.


Arif is an Oslo based rapper that earlier this year dropped what’s considered to be the Norwegian hip hop album of the year with his “HighEnd/Asfalt” release.

One of the stand out tracks on the album is “Sulten” (meaning “Hungry” in Norwegian), Swedish rappers Michel Dida and Erik Lundin (AKA Eboi) together with the mighty force known as Respect My Hustle puts their mark on the track with this amazing version.

“The song is called “Sulten” which means hungry in Norwegian. It represents a mindstate that I was in. Its just a accumulation of thoughts and feelings behind the struggle of “making it” in whatever field that you are pursuing. All the invincible barriers that are put in front of you beacause of your ethinicity, religion, or social background. I wanted a different perspective and take on the track, so it was only right to contact RMH. Michel Dida and Erik Lundin are among my favourite rappers from Sweden, and I knew they understood the meaning behind the track, so it was an honor that they wanted to get on it. And of course they killed it.”


Adam Tensta will unleash his third and highly anticipated album “The Empty” via RMH Sound on June 24th and judging from hearing the title track that surfaced it looks set to be stunning. “The Empty” is a downtempo, hornlaced track with Adams signature flow.

“The Belle Époque or La Belle Époque is our period in Swedish history. It is a period characterized by distrust for the politicians, war at home and madness at the ballots, new spew of hatred and classism. The hardships and failure in Sweden allowed the arts to flourish, and many masterpieces of literature, music, theater, and visual art gained recognition.”
