So this Sunday marks the end of another tremendous summer week that has kept me so busy I have not found time to write it all down until now.
On Tuesday, Pause released his brand new album Stuck on 100 (Download Here) which he had me do the cover and photos for. Pause was a pleasure to work with and I look forward to more projects with him in the future as well as his appearance on the Scope Urban Apparel promo mixtape. He directed the entire cover project from the concept to the shoot to providing the signiture scripts which are personally my favorite part. (In the spirit of the chef who is able to most appreciate the part of the meal he did not cook.) Anyways, download the album – its crazy good and totally free.
Mid-week brought Catch Wreck‘s Appearence in the Boston Phoenix: “Young Gifted and Black makes responsible rap cool Drama of the Gifted Child“, a long time coming and hopefully the first of many press pieces on the moves we’re making out here. Big up Chris Farone, author of the piece and frequent supporter of the community and artistic endeavors we have put together in the past.
Also if you haven’t seen the new video “Ooo…You Didn’t Know” off of the upcoming mixtape Grindmode by Catch Wreck, Rey Leon and Illiam Savant , you are definilty sleeping. As always Rene Dongo comes through with the stunning cinematography.
And to end the week in the best possible way, Young Gifted and Black 8 was another success, with spectacular performances by MC D, Sofia Snow, X-Rated and many, many more!
