While most of the world has recognized Aloe Blacc as a popular singer, quite a few heads remember him as a rapper half of the duo Emanon with producer Exile. Back in 2004 Aloe had collaborated with Beat Junkie DJ and producer Rhettmatic on a bunch of joints looking to release this project. Even though the work was completed and ideas were to shop it, it seemed the twosome had shifted apart working on other things and the project had been lost. That is until Rhett dug it back up and reached out to Aloe to rework it and even add a few features.
"I had a chance to revisit the album and I totally forgot that Aloe & myself recorded a whole project that was made 13 years ago. I reached out to Aloe to remind him about our project. Even as busy as Aloe is now, he took the time to listen back to the album & said it would be dope if people could here our progression. He suggested that we release this album as a FREE project & gave me the idea concept of the album title & cover artwork. I am very lucky that Aloe gave me his blessing to release this project that you are about to listen now. We hope you enjoy this time capsule & this little nostalgia from our musical past. And the saying goes...the rest is history.
To everyone that's taking the time to listen to this piece of history, as well as those who've been supporting me & musical endeavors from the get go, thank you very much. To my man wiz1der for helping me with the mixdowns. To my man FWMJ of RappersIKnow for the artwork. And to my brother Aloe....thank you for always being a friend & a musical comrade. Everything you've worked hard for, you deserved!
