    Dope! Props on the info Lou, looking forward to it…

    Man atmosphere performed EVERYTHING. back from Overcast! to their new album. About 3 songs off each album, and they brought out a live band. it was an epic show dude. If you ever get the chance go see them!

    Aww man, I'd love that, they never hit up my area though. Glad you had a great time though.

    Decent track, not feeling the political vibe though, prefer him on some 'Rain Water' 🤬 .

    album leaked. 🤬 dope.
  • RuffDraftRuffDraft Members, Writer Posts: 4,753 ✭✭✭✭
    Co-sign Lou, album's incredible. Beat selection is as impressive as the lyricism. It's a shame this is the third album this year that I honestly hold in extremely high regard in the underground. There's usually more. Hopefully have a few great releases left for us to enjoy before the new year!!!

    Going to check that today, have you listened to it yet? Blu's not been on my 'to-check-list' in a while, but I'm glad there's finally a mastered copy.

    Dope. Still never got the chance to check for it… Blu should work solely with Exile in future… good mix.

    Is Fashawn's album still dropping soon??? Bit gutted that he's working with Murs and not releasing his sophomore…
  • Lou CypherLou Cypher Make Reasonable Choices. H. E. Double Hockey SticksMembers Posts: 52,520 ✭✭✭✭✭
    I havent heard nothing on Fashawn's album. He was talking about it a lot on Facebook but just stopped and was focused on this project with Murs. So hopefully now that its about to be out we will get back on Track with the Ecology.

    I haven't got him on there, hopefully you're right Lou… I think he'll probably tour first though? It's surprising that he's got side-tracked, but I think for a lot of underground cats, pairing up is great for tours.

    Ali put together a great album here..lyrics, content and production were all dope..Ali does a great job giving you a message in his music but not coming off as preachy..incredible project..
