Willie Green - A Suite for Souled People

“A Suite For Souled People” – Brand New E.P. from Willie Green – Out Now!!

New York producer Willie Green just dropped his new E.P. called “A Suite For Souled People” focusing on and around the tragic events that happened in Ferguson, Missouri recently. It features Elucid, Curly Castro, and billy woods and is in our opinion, simply incredible. The powerful and emotive messages, and awe-inspiring production makes this a must have Project in 2014…

“The recent events in Ferguson, Missouri (as well as Staten Island, Beavercreek, Ohio, and Los Angeles) have lifted a veil of comfortable ignorance across this country. The murder of Michael Brown, resultant cover up and egregious treatment of protesters has shown that the perception of Black people in America has changed little since the Civil Rights movement of the 1960’s. Americans live in a country where the oppressed are dehumanized and told to be quiet and gracious about their anger; and where the oppressors are harbored by our government and rewarded by our peers. Where the media warps facts to prove agendas against citizens and digital voices rush to play devil’s advocate to conceal their own bias. These are terrifying statements and not exaggerations. I’m no revolutionary. But I am someone who wants to look his children in the eyes and say when his country showed its worst, he did something”. – Paul “Willie Green” Womack, Sept. 15th, 2014

“A Hitchhiker’s Guide To A Verse” by Loop Minded Individuals – Full Length Album Out Now!

Looking for something fresh to elevate your weekend listening??? Well, look no further… Loop Minded Individuals’ (ESH the Monolith and Intrikit) new album “A Hitchhiker’s Guide to a Verse” is just that and much much more! With such an epic lineup of tracks and features this is one project that’s just impossible to overlook and even better it’s available on a limited edition cassette tape via I Had an Accident Records right here:

“The idea of taking the listener through a journey is one that gets tossed around frequently by artists. But with “Loop Minded Individuals: A Hitchhikers Guide to A Verse,” ESH the Monolith and Intrikit look to take that concept one step further. 

ESH and Intrikit – producer/MCs representing Boston and Norwich, CT., respectively – spearhead the 10-track project, a throwback to gritty late-’90s rap compilations that aims to bring together some of the finest up-and-coming vocalists in independent music. Loosely inspired by the Douglas Adams’ novel its name pays homage to, the album invites an array of MCs and singers to hop on soundscapes, sharing their story with ESH and Intrikit and, in turn, the listener. 

“We used this album as an opportunity to work with some of the talented people we’ve met around the country. We wanted to have a wide range of voices, each bringing their unique story and perspective,” says ESH, whose previous projects include 2009’s “The ADDventures of an E.ccentric S.uper H.ero,” 2011’s “Invisible” (with producer Dox Ellis) and, most recently, “Nightworks,” a collaboration with AR Classic producer The Arcitype. 

Aside from ESH and Intrikit (whose own work includes the 2013 DIM release “Bright Ideas”), “Loop Minded Individuals” features vocals from Elucid, Moe Pope, Roc Doogie, Romen Rok, Has-Lo, Teddy Faley, F. Virtue, DeeBee, the Kreators, Seez Mics (Educated Consumers), Grey Sky Appeal and others. Renowned turntablists Emoh Betta and DJ Merf also make contributions. 

“We tried to construct a cohesive picture which a bunch of loose puzzle pieces,” ESH says. “We hope the listener enjoys the ride.” “

Just a note; there are only 36 of these cassettes left, so don’t sleep too long if you’d like to get your hands one one.
