You hear it here first. Koncept and Tenacity come together to form the Coarse Company. Their free EP “Same Page,” drops on December 17th but they’ve sent us their first single exclusively to URB.
Here’s the first leak off Koncept’s “Live On” EP which drops not far from now, on October 22nd. The EP will feature sole production from Numonics (producer for Blu, Co$$, Reks, Sene and Planet Asia).
Blame One and J57 linked up via Twitter in August 2010 right before Fat Beats closed. They were supposed to work on one or two songs but with all of J’s new-found free time from the store closing, they decided to work on an album. They did the entire album through thousands of email, calls and texts. They never met face-to-face until this past May at Red Bull Studios in Santa Monica while J57 was in town recording his album with Koncept. Their album was already finished, mixed, mastered and sent off to be pressed up on vinyl before they ever met in person.
Blame One is from the West Coast crew; Dirty Science (Exile, Blame One, Blu, Aloe Blacc, Fashawn, & Johaz) and J57 is from the NYC crew; Brown Bag AllStars (Audible Doctor, DeeJay Element, DJ E Holla, J57, Koncept & Soul Khan).
Blame One & J57′s “Walk in the Sun” LP drops August 27 on SoulSpazm Records. The album drops digitally August 27 and you can pre-order it here. You can also pre-order the double color vinyl which comes out September 3rd.
In celebration of Koncept “Malt Disney (J57 Remix)” EP dropping today via SoulSpazm Records. Koncept and J57 decided to release a new video for one of the songs from the EP. They shot this video in the California desert while they were out there recording their album at Red Bull’s studio in Santa Monica. Check the jump for the video.
