:: About Estee Nack & Purpose and ’14 Forms: The Book of Estee Nack’ ::

Growing up in the streets of Lynn, Massachusetts, there are very few artists who genuinely preserve the essence of hip-hop in its golden age… This is where hip-hop collaborative Tragic Allies have been able to set themselves apart from their peers throughout the years.

In 2015, Tragic Allies are delivering yet another gift to the legacy of the golden age. This time the Allies frontmen Estee Nack and Purpose come together with plans on further solidifying their Tragic Allies brand as a dominant force in hip-hop with their new full length offering, “14 Forms: The Book of Estee Nack”, set to be released on underground powerhouse Ill Adrenaline Records. After making notable appearances on Tragic Allies classic debut album “The Tree of Knowledge of Good & Evil” as well as 2013’s underground smash album 7 G.E.M.S. (Tragic Allies & Tragedy Khadafi) “Golden Era Music Sciences”, an ideologically refreshed Estee Nack drops what he considers to be his testament of truth, justice and righteousness unto those – who like him (1st generation American born to immigrants from the Dominican Republic) – were raised combating the daily trials and tribulations of survival in minority-majority, low-income neighborhoods. Nack lets us know how serious he is about preserving the purity of his overall message by handling all the mic work on the entire album, equipping his rugged vocal delivery to manifest topics ranging from the struggle and pride of immigrants (particularly Dominicans) in America and abroad, to his ideas on the social structure, fake friends, sex, and the science of the universe.

The front-to-back play-worthy musical backdrops are ingeniously mapped by Purpose who continues to carve his legacy as a great producer, after providing stellar production on the previously released 7 G.E.M.S. and Paranom albums, offering a folk-like array of dark, funky basslines, dusty drum patterns and mellow-dreary melodic landscapes that – while remaining grimy and dark (true to the Purpose influenced Tragic Allies sound) – are reminiscent to a more grassroots sound, if not a deep inner city blues. This year, Tragic Allies continue to hit hard with Purpose and Nack’s MC/production styles blending as perfectly as expected, drawing listeners up into a trance like state, inspiring feelings of laughter, pride, sadness, anger, love and revolution per the trademark Tragic Allies sound.

Pete Rock – Cosmic Slop | Official Video


From the upcoming album “Petestrumentals 2”
coming on Mello Music Group June 23, 2015
Directed by Jay Brown & Zack Kashkett

itunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/pet…
CD: http://www.mellomusicgroup.com/collec…
Vinyl: http://www.mellomusicgroup.com/collec…

Pete Rock was raised in Mount Vernon, but his face belongs on Mount Rushmore. The Chocolate Boy Wonder perfected an art form, inspired millions, and soundtracked a generation. By contrast, Teddy Roosevelt seems like a chump.

This is the man who Dilla told, “I wanted to be like you.” Kanye once called himself the “new Pete Rock.” But the original Pete Rock remains permanently vital. The evidence bangs in his latest opus, Petestrumentals 2, the sequel to the 2001 classic that helped define the hip-hop instrumental record. It marks the legend’s first album on Mello Music Group, a fitting union between the author of the boom-bap blueprint and the label that’s expanded upon his legacy.

Describing Pete Rock’s productions do them little justice. They resonate in your gut, heart, and brain. The title of one of these beats says it all: “Makes Me Feel Like.” You fill in the blanks based on your personal experience and current mood.

Petestrumentals 2 conjures memories of BBQ cookouts and 70s Blaxploitation scores, rattling summer jeep cruises and blunted Jamaican vacations. There’s a gorgeous requiem to Dilla (“Dilla Bounce (R.I.P),” where the originator pays tribute to the prodigy. You see the full range of Rock’s gifts on display: the meticulously chopped horns, unquantized drums, and air raid sirens. It contains the emotion of a thousand eulogies.
No record can’t be resurrected. There’s no sub-genre or era that can’t be converted into Rock’s singular brand of soul. His music is the closest thing we’ll ever get to a time-traveling DeLorean, effortlessly shifting between past, present, and future.

For the last 20 years, hip-hop heads have argued over the best Pete Rock original productions and remixes. Is it “They Reminisce Over You” or the “Shut ‘Em Down Remix?” Do you prefer Soul Survivor or the first Petestrumentals, his work with INI or the UN? His catalogue can’t be compressed into a bio; you need a book.
This is the latest chapter—an even 20 slaps and rhythmic levitations. It’s Pete Rock at his best, accelerating and kicking cosmic slop, extending wishes, hope, love, gritty drums and eternal wonder.

AWKWORD “THE IVORY TOWER” PROD. DOMINANT1

ivory copy

New ish from AWKWORD “The Ivory Tower” is out now!

I was recently being interviewed by BLUNTIQ.com EIC Craig T. Lee, and he challenged me to come up with a quick 16 bars on “college”. Instead, I crafted a brand-new song — on the US education system as a whole.”

“The Ivory Tower” is produced by Dominant1, who was able to complete the instrumental, the mix and the master, despite the floods in his home country of Malawi, Africa. 
ENJOY!
