For me it's just super ill that very underrated Preservation is finally taking a large step up in his career this year. With his mid-2000s productions on albums by Mos Def, The Wu-Tang Fam, and Lord Jamar I quickly became a fan and has cherished anything new he puts out since. 2013 has so far seen him release a absolutely terrific free digital album consisting of his full take on Mos Def's "The Ecstatic", the solo compilation "Old Numbers" which is a superb listen that mixes previously unreleased material with a few rare tracks from his catalouge. The latter featured the song "SHYNE", featuring upcoming emcee Yahzeed (which you see the video for above), and with that Preservation just announced that he's closest upcoming project is a full-EP collaboration with Yahzeed called "Of Monolithic Proportions", so definitely keep your eyes and ears the fuck open! And if you haven't already, head over to Mon Die Music Store to cop the "Old Numbers" LP or CD directly from the label.
