Outside of his A Vintage Love Supreme project, Devine Carama remained rather quiet in 2015. For good reason though; he was focusing on community work within his hometown through his non-benefit charity, Believing In Forever.
Locked and loaded for 2016, the Lexington, KY native has plans to release an EP, The Glorious B.I.G., in the near future. But first, he’s decided to unearth a previously-unreleased gem in the form of the jackin-for-beats track “500 Bars to Glorious pt.1.”
“I was in the middle of recording my 2014 album Believing In Forever and I was looking for unique was to build hype for the album,” says Carama. “With an album already released in January and another album & ep already in the works my creative juices were pumping to say the least. So I started working on a 3 piece jackin’ the beats series entitled ‘500 Bars to Glorious.’ Fear of over saturation I scrapped the project even after recording part one and instead releasing a track called ‘10 Blog Commandments‘ which was originally suppose to be the start of part 2 of 500 Bars To Glorious… In any event, I decided to release part 1 (170 bars) today to set the tone for the rest of the year.”
Peace to fellow Kentucky native, DJ JK-47, on the blends.
