Mixmaster Mase announce solo LP

When De La Soul's Pos and Dave formed their new duo First Serve, it made me wonder why the group's DJ/co-producer Maseo a.k.a. Plug Three wasn't involved. Turns out that there's no bad blood between these three vets but rather a way for its members to branch out and try some new stuff. At the recent L.A. Red Bull Music Academy event, Mixmaster Mase / Maseo announced a solo album that he's been working on for some. He'll of course handle all the production and cuts for a host of artists including a mixture of well-known artists and new artists. The album is called "DJ Conductor" and so far Mase has recorded tracks with legends like KRS-One, Freddie Foxxx and Fashawn. For some reason that guy Mac Miller will also appear on the album but I'm still betting my money on this being a serious album well worth the money. It's gonna be interesting to see which project is better - the First Serve LP or "DJ Conductor".

For a little taste of what might to expect from this album, I uploaded "Words & Verbs" for y'all; a Maeso produced single featuring Kovas from 2000. This tight cut also appeared on some versions of De La's "Oooh." maxi-single.
