Bring It Back: The Orphanage (Slug x Aesop Rock x Illogic x Blueprint x Eyedea) - Obsolete

Considering I'm heading out to catch Atmosphere (for like the 20th time haha), Blueprint, Budo and Grieves at the House of Blues in a few hours; I figured I'd shed some light on this joint. The Orphanage is/was a loose collective that included Slug, Blueprint, Aesop Rock, Eyedea and Illogic. Sadly, the group never officially released any projects (and I think it's safe to say that every single indie hip hop fan is still disappointed to this day). We did atleast get a few tracks/freestyles though. This one in particular can be found on Blueprint's 2003 release, The Weightroom.

    That Sage and Apathy style is awesome. That was the stuff that got me into hip-hop.

    I love how Sage laughs/yells after that Big Pun line.

    • Chad Howe

      They never released an actual album, every track in existence by the orphanage was a feature on a solo album of one of the members of the group.
