Salvasquared: “Streets” (feat. Wardo)

By: Jack Anderson

Although he’s got strong ties to El Salvador, Edgar Umana’s enjoyed a fruitful life right here in Austin. For the past decade and a half Umana’s built up a reputation as both MC and producer under the handle Salvasquared, having joined Rhyme Stack in 2005, a full ten years before the release of his debut solo album Peleamos.

Since then Salvasquared’s upshifted his level of productivity, having spent some time in South Korea producing instrumental tracks before teaming up with Tesfa for their bi-lingual 2019 album Nomadas. Just last Friday Salvasquared shared Based On True Stories, a well-calculated ten-track that delves even further into the lyricists already introspective nature and bolstered by a couple strong guest appearances, including one from Wardo on the record’s gritty, penultimate offering.
