Premiere: Stream Wax Tailor's 'By Any Beats Necessary' Album

A legend in France, Jean-Christophe Le Saoût has released four studio albums, collaborating with acts from all over under the stage name Wax Tailor. Now, we’re ecstatic to premiere his fifth offering to the people, as By Any Beats Necessary makes its debut on October 14th. We’ve been blessed to be able to share with you an early listen to the Malcolm X and Sartre inspired phrase by sharing this cut, “Back On Wax,” which features A-F-R-O and R.A. The Rugged Man.

“Without going too deep into politics, the album’s title reflects my determination to use all kinds of sounds and textures to get to something musical,” JC said in a press release sent to us via email. “the word ‘Beat’ also draws a line towards the Beat Generation, Kerouac’s famous novel On The Road, and the quest for a better place. And so, in this time when each of us needs a little escape, I conceptualized this album as a soundtrack to a better elsewhere that I imagined to be the south western part of the U.S.A.”

Joining him in this adventure are up-and-comers such as A-F-R-O and Token, plus veterans such as Ghostface Killah from the Wu-Tang Clan and R.A. The Rugged Man. Without any further ado, we are proud to share with you the full stream of By Any Beats Necessary. Listen to the album below, shell out some coins to cop the project when it drops on October 14th and whip out your calendar for when the French beatsmith comes to a city near you.
