EDO G preps "After All These Years" through Kickstarter

Pretty much any true hip-hop head absolutely love the ruff voice, sharp lyrics and social and personal commentary of Edo G, but unfortunately that love has never really transformed into record sales. With ten retail albums behind, the Boston emcee now turns to Kickstarter to let help fans bring his upcoming "After All These Years" to life. "I've been working on this new album for the last year, and it's brought me back to that original Ed O.G. & Da Bulldogs conscious boom bap rap ... It's time to go back to the very beginning, to the essence of what hip-hop is", Edo says in the video embeded above before going into how he found four of '90s Pete Rock beat that he never got around to using that'll be included here (!). Sounds like a crazy project no doubt, especially as The LP will feature production from 9th Wonder, Xplicit One, and Pete Rock as already mentioned while Guilty Simpson, Chuck D and Camp Lo all are slated for vocal apperances. If the album (which will be pressed up on a very limited 2xLP set) isn't enough you'll also receive a cassette of "My Own Worst Enemey" and an iLL book documenting the writing process of 10 of Edo's personal favorite tracks. How iLL is that?  

The label is 5th & UNION, an imprint formed by Edo together with Jamieson Grillo. It's a Kickstarter project though, which means that the release of it is based on fan demand. The goal for the label is to gather $12,500 which of $9,276 is already in the can. Please show your support for this, even if it's just $10 dollars because we need to see this happen. I know I will donate and I really don't have the money for it but by doing this you cut out the middle hand - no money to shady A&R:s and non-musical bitches, just simply  cash to create, complete and distribute an album - 'nuff said... Also check out the snippet of the Chuck D track below, sounding serious!
