We made it to our goal of $2k on April 3, thanks to the many good people that have kicked this project into gear. FRESH! Please still consider pre-ordering/backing Why You Cryin? through Kickstarter -- the $ we raise on top of the original goal will go towards making a video for one of the songs on the album.

Also, scroll down for links to three songs from the album. GET YOUR PREVIEW ON.

Not the 1s – Why You Cryin?

The debut album from SF/OAK rap duo Not the 1s (Cuzzo/Eric & Mawnstr/Alex) will be released on vinyl and digitally by Gold Robot Records in June 2011. Featuring songs about being fly, driving space-age cars, and shoplifting just for the kicks of it. Beats by Lunice, Daedelus, Mexicans With Guns, Young L, Waes One, Debruit, and Monster Rally. Bonus raps by Isaiah Toothtaker. Art by Augustine Kofie and Michelle Romo. MAJOR.

The $$$ you put into Why You Cryin? will go towards the cost of [01] pressing a limited run (250 copies) of the album on colored 12inch vinyl & [02] printing t-shirts featuring the album's cover art.

+ Shipping is included for US residents. If you are backing this project from outside of the US, please add $5 to your order to cover exxxtra shipping costs.

Update on 3/23: Altered Zones premiered the first track from the album today. It's called "You Dress Like an Asshole" and was produced by Lunice. Word!

Update on 4/1: RCRD LBL premiered the second track from Why You Cryin? this morning. It's called "Your Dad Hate Me" and was produced by Daedelus. Ah yeahhh.

Update on 4/6: Impose Magazine debuted "Not the 1s" (our theme song) today. Produced by Mexicans with Guns. It KILLLLLLLLS.
