The rapper who just signed on with X3M music says ‘I have been underground for a while doing a whole lot, recording new songs and re-recording old ones. For now, I have 12 songs recorded and I still intend to record more songs. In all, I’d be picking 14 songs for the album’.
The forthcoming album records contributions from long time allies Terry Da Rapman, Mode 9, Black Solo, A.T, KB and Sasha. In addition to the news of his new album, the rapper also previewed a new track titled ‘Got to Love Me’ this week.
The rapper upon joining X3M Music made a complete makeover from his usual big tee shirts and baggy jeans. ‘It is intentional’ he explains ‘I just want to show that one doesn’t have to be dressed in a particular way to prove to the world that you are a hard core rapper. You can shop at the same spot where bankers shop and still represent your own art’ He says adding ‘Hip hop is a state of mind, a culture, a movement. It is much more than what you rock’
