Good news folks, Add-2‘s Prey For The Poor has officially arrived! And although it might not get as much press as some of today’s other releases – like Travi$ Scott’s RODEO – the Chicago emcee’s JAMLA debut deserves your attention.
It’s crazy to think, but I’ve been supporting Add for damn near ten years now. We first connected during my days at HipHopDX, after he dropped his debut mixtape, Tale Of Two’s City, in 2005. From there, I ended up handling the artwork for Vol. 2: The Return Of the Menace in 2007, the DopeHouse (and okayplayer) helped present Vol. 3 & Vol. 4 in the following years, and we’ve been backing every release – One Missed Call, Save.Our.Souls, More Missed Calls, and Between Heaven & Hell w/ Khrysis – ever since.
Today is about Prey For The Poor though, and as expected, the Windy City spitter doesn’t disappoint. At 14 tracks – lead by the 9th Wonder-produced “Set It Off” and “Stop Play Rewind” with Rapsody – the LP also features Raheem DeVaughn, Sam Trump, Heather Victoria, and Jamla Woods – over amazing production from 9th Wonder, Khrysis, Nottz, Amp, Kash, and FC the Truth.
