blame it on Shake August 12, 2014

Fans of The Black Opera we have some great news! On September 30th, the mysterious crew will come from out of hiding and release their new album The Great Years via Mello Music Group.

To help celebrate the announcement, the DopeHouse has been given the green light to let loose the album’s first single, “No Water,” produced by Jansport J. Check it out, as well as the LP’s tracklist, below.

Imagine a world where water is the most valuable commodity, even more valued than oil or gold. What would happen if water became so scarce that it caused World Wars? “No Water” puts a spin on this idea & takes a satirical look at water through the lens of an excessive rap culture where splurging on water is the new wave.
