LAST AUGUST, I WENT DOWN TO HUNTSVILLE, ALABAMA TO PLAY THE BIRTHDAY PARTY OF MY BUDDY ZACH JEFFRIES. THAT NIGHT, I SHARED THE STAGE WITH NO OTHER THAN G-SIDE, WHO WERE ALREADY A FAVORITE RAP GROUP OF MINE. OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS IN HUNSTSVILLE I HUNG OUT AND MADE A SONG FOR MY MIXTAPE “JOURNEYMAN FROM THE HEARTLAND” AT THE SLOW MOTION SOUNDS WORLD HQ.

THIS TRACK, TITLED “NEVER FADE AWAY”, FEATURES VERSES FROM ST 2 LETTAZ FROM G-SIDE AND SLASH AND WAS CO-PRODUCED BY MYSELF AND THE BLOCK BEATAZ. FATE WAS SEALED, A BANGER WAS CREATED AND THE MILWAUKEE/HUNTSVILLE CONNECTION REACHED A NEW LEVEL.

G-SIDE HAS A NEW ALBUM OUT CALLED “THE ONE…COHESIVE” AND IT IS GREAT. THERE IS SOMETHING BOTH CLASSIC AND NEXT LEVEL ABOUT THIS RECORD THAT I LOVE. THE BLOCK BEATAZ REALLY OUTDID THEMSELVES ON THE PRODUCTION TIP, SOMEHOW FUSING NEO-SOUL, EURODANCE AND SOUTHERN RAP LIKE ITS THE MOST NATURAL THING IN THE WORLD. THE RAPPING IS AS ALWAYS FIRST RATE AND THIS RECORD IS OVERALL A GREAT WAY TO START OUT THE NEW YEAR. GET IT NOW!
