So, as you may know, I’ve been working with my homeboy Illogic for a while now. We released two free ep’s , a ton of videos and in April we will be dropping our full length together called “Capture the Sun” on Man bites dog Records.
I just wanted to use this post to pretty much cover everything we’ve done and let you all know that we’re both really excited to be putting this full length out.
Let’s take a little walk down memory lane…
This was the first song I ever did with Illogic. We made it around 2000. I had had an idea to make an album with various rappers over my beats but it never got finished due to me now knowing enough good rappers at the time.
But this song is what got the ball rolling
During that same trip, Illogic made another song with Aesop over one of my tracks
From there, it was years until Illogic and I would work together. One day he hit me up randomly and was like “hey, you wanna make an album?” I was like “Sure!” and that’s how music gets made! What ended up happening was I sent him tons of beats. He ended up picking like 30 of them and making songs. Because we no longer live in a era of double albums, we decided it might be best to release a few eps. The hope was these ep’s would not only announce that Illogic and I were working together but also seek out interest from record labels. Before any of the ep’s came out, we leaked this song…
You can download that here:
If you’re one of those know-it-all nerds, you might recognize that track from a despot remix I did. Oops!
There is also this track got released on a the compilation “Collaboration is the key”
Shortly after that we put together our first EP called “Preparing for capture”. This is still available for free download
This spawned a few videos:
After that, we put together the second free ep, “Preparing for capture 2”
This had a video as well:
So, that brings us to where we are currently. “Capture the sun” drops April 16th.
Here’s A video of Illogic and I discussing the album
Also, here are two videos of what we got in store for that album.
The first single “Capture the sun” Featuring Slug of Atmosphere on the hook.
And another joint of the album “Neva Heard”
Got it? Good. I hope you like all this stuff. If you do, please cop the album when it drops. also, keep an eye out for Illogic performing at SXSW as well as some shows we’ll be doing together in the midwest come the release date.
Also, I’d just to send shout out to Blueprint for helping with the photo’s and interview video, Ryan from Man Bites dog for putting the album out and Eric Anello and Laura Green for all the videos they made. You guyz are da best.
