This project only caught my eyes because the homie KNO and his counterpart Deacon the Villain (CunninLynguists) we’re a part of it. Needless to say, I’m glad I took note…
On a random weekend over 40 Lexington area emcees came together for the love of Hip Hop & fellowship to recreate a classic. The choices were between Dr. Dre’s Chronic 2001, Common’s Be & Outkast Atliens (Other albums were considered but instrumentals were not available for every song on the albums).
