Yes, I do still work with rappers


084
I’ve been on tour the majority of the last few months and a question that keeps coming up from random people is “Are you ever gonna work with mc’s again?” to which i reply “Actually…”
Turns out, I’ve been making tons of music with rappers over the last 4 years or so and a lot of people haven’t really noticed. Granted, I can’t really knock them for that cause the projects haven’t been huge name artists but more rappers I personally fuck with as a person and a fan. Labors of love and respect. I figure I might as well just give the heads up to all those asking cause there is , in fact, lots of music I’ve done with MC’s. Entire albums produced by me, in fact. As well as some one offs here and there.
I’ll also add, I’m working on a compilation album that I plan dropping before my next full length that will feature rappers, singers and instrumental songs. It will be a free release too so get your wallets out and then immediately put them back in your pocket.
Anyway, here’s a quick refresher course of the albums I’ve done with rappers. Included are links but know that, if you wanna support and buy the album and the website i direct you to is not one you typically use, all these albums (with exception of the Ep’s with Illogic) are available EVERYWHERE digitally. I-tunes, amazon, etc as well spotify for streaming.
So, let’s start with Illogic.
Illogic is an incredibly gifted mc from Columbus, Ohio who I’ve been down with since before Def Jox existed. He worked with Aesop , as well as Atmosphere, Blueprint and ton of other talents. A few year back he hit me up asked if I wanted to do a project together and I jumped at the opportunity. Turns out…we were both in highly prolific points in our lives and we churned out an full length album and 3 Ep’s. So, we got MAD music together including two lead up EP’s to the full length and prologue EP we dropped afterwards.

Next up, We got Billy Woods. Woods is a brooklyn based MC I was a huge fan of before i even met him. We got linked up through friends in common and immediately hit it off. We made the album “Dour Candy” soon after that and are currently finishing up another album together (Mostly produced by me but with a special guest producer on a couple tracks) that should be out next year.

Next we got Marq Spekt. He’s originally from philly and a guy I’ve been a fan of since the early 2000’s. He was one of those dudes that everyone I knew knew but I had never met before. I forget how it happened but we linked up and decided to do an album together out of mutual respect and admiration for each others work. We got two albums together on HipNott Records , the newest actually dropped pretty recently

There’s also a few loosies I’ve done with various artists over the years you might have missed:
Lice (Aesop & Homeboy Sandman)- Environmental studies

Open Mike eagle- Billy’s Quagmire

Red Pill- Darlin’

Sum- Oblivion

Premrock- Criminal Childish

Premrock- Let me see your tongue

Sir Jarlsberg Ft. Aesop, lateef, Blockhead, Kimya dawson, Baby Dayliner and more- All’s Faire

Googie- Big mouth arcade

Googie- Googie Architecture

And shit…while I got you here, did you know I made an album as a part of a group called The Mighty Jones? It’s me on beats, two female vocalists and live guitar and bass. If you’re not so much a hip hop fan but like my beats and singing…this one should speak to your soul. This song in the video below is actually not even released but will be soon.

So, there you have. I may have even forgotten a few things but that’s the answer to anyone who’s wondered if I still make music with other people. A resounding yes with much more to come.

  1. lots of great stuff, man. bought illogic, billy woods and both marq spekt albums when they were released – all of em are very solid.

    recently, i ordered the googie cd too, it also sounds very nice.

    today was the first time i heard about your group, the mighty jones. just listening to the album at the moment, i really like it. did you ever press physicals of it?

  2. I’m bummed that I missed out on getting a CD copy of the last Illogic EP and Keep Playin’ by Marq Spekt. I managed to get that Google CD though. Never heard of dude, but was hooked after streaming like half of it on Bandcamp.
