About

"Known Associates" is Lord Jamar's follow up to his sophomore album, the 2006 spiritual-minded release The 5% Album. The album will features strong production and guest from the likes of Nature, Wu-Tang Clan affiliate Cappadonna, Lord Superb and more.

After label issues it was decided to be in the best interest of everyone involved if we pursued the indie route. We decided to go with Kickstarter because we felt that this could potentially be the way most music artists raise the necessary funds for recording, touring and merchandise.  We're looking to press 1000 CDs and fund the video for the first single. By supporting this project you will be helping us to achieve that goal.

Finishing up the recording process, shooting the video, manufacturing the CDs and promoting the release will actually cost more than the requested $10,000 so we're hoping that we can exceed that goal. With your help, I know we can.

If the project goal is not reached by the deadline, the money will not be charged to you.

***All rewards include free shipping to your location and are reliant on the goal being reached.
