SoulStice – Unfold f. Oddisee

blame it on Shake April 30, 2009

If you don’t know about SoulStice, I advise you check out North by Northwest and Dead Letter Perfect now. And while you’re at it, check out his Wade Waters material (with Haysoos) too. Not only does dude put out great music, he also received a Masters in Electrical Computer Engineering; and currently works for the Department of Defense. Yea, take that rappers. Anyways… this record is the first leak off his upcoming album, Beyond Borders, dropping this June w/ features from GLC, Oddisee, Kev Brown, Supastition, Wordsmith and Zap Mama. Now, words from SoulStice…

The project is a collaboration between myself and Belgian beatmaker, SBe, who provides all of the instrumental music for the album.  As far as the vocals, the songs are collaborations between myself and many of my favorite artists from around the world.  We’ve got artists from the US, UK, Germany, Ireland, Netherlands, Belgium, Africa, and Canada.  The first time I ever traveled abroad was a trip I took Russia in 2000.  The fact that the globalization of hip hop had reached all the way there really made an impression on me.  Since then I’ve grown as an artist and have toured around the world, seeing firsthand how hip hop, as a US cultural export, has grown and become something new and different in these various places.  Yet, the underlying theme is the same everywhere: hip hop continues to be the mouthpiece for people who exist outside of the mainstream to make their voices heard throughout society and around the world.
