Great news. My new album is completely recorded and is almost done being mixed as I type this. It's sounding GREAT! After that I will have it professionally mastered and finish the artwork.
I'm basically taking pre-orders now which is why I set the goal at only $10. This album is already made. It's done. Once it is mastered everyone who pledges $10 or more will get a digital download of the album.
IF you support this independent underground HIPHOP project and we can raise enough funds I will send it to press and I will print up 200 limited edition CDs to start (more if we raise more money and people want them) and 200 copies of vinyl 12inch albums.
The reason I am doing this Kickstarter is because I have already invested all my money into this project and I want to take pre-orders to raise funds to help pay off some of the mastering fees and hopefully for pressing up physical CDs and vinyl and maybe even do an extra song if possible. Consider this a pre-order since the album is already recorded.
The album is produced entirely by Blueprint and features 7 fresh songs including a brand new song featuring Blueprint and Slug from Atmosphere! Yes I am excited to share this one with you all!
The album also features my friend and frequent collaborator RoXXXteady on several hooks showing off his super talented voice and a special collaboration with him on Thank You.

As you can see there are not a lot of REWARDS. I am too focused on just making music and getting this album done. I do not have time to make t-shirts, stickers, pins...whatever. I am promising you some fresh HIPHOP with dope beats and lyrics. Timeless music that is good for the soul, not disposable art and trinkets that will clutter your house and fill your trash in time.
Stretch Goal #1: If we can raise $500.00 I will press up limited edition CD with some beautiful artwork. The first 180 people to pledge $15.00 will get one of these autographed CDs along with the digital download. We only need about 33 HipHop fans to pledge $15 to make this happen!
Stretch Goal #2: If we can raise $4,500.00 I will press up limited edition vinyl 12 inch albums . The first 180 people to pledge $30 will get an autographed copy of the vinyl album and the CD as well as the digital download. We only need 150 HipHop fans to pledge $30 to make this happen!
Stretch Goal #3: If we can raise anything above $4,500.00 I will include more songs on the album. Basically the more we can raise the more music we can create.
Why ILLUS and BLUEPRINT?
Blueprint and I have worked together on several projects in the past and if you enjoyed those I know you will love this one.
I did the illustration at the end for this Blueprint Directed and Produced Atmosphere video.
I illustrated all 3 of Blueprint's books.
