The Lessondary crew — the collective of Tanya Morgan (Donwill and Von Pea), Ilyas Nashid, Rob Cave (fka Spec Boogie), Che Grand, Jermiside, Elucid, Aeon and Brickbeats — will finally release their first album as a collective, Ahead Of Schedule, on June 24th. It’s been a long time coming for the crew, who have been a staple in New York’s independent hip hop seen — as well as a DopeHouse mainstay – for years now.
Before its due date though, they have teamed with their longtime turntable maestro DJ Low Key for Never 2ndary, a compilation of tracks from each member’s respective discography. At 21 tracks, the project takes listeners throughout their decade-plus works, and can be streamed below.
The Lessondary also released a video for “Never 2ndary,” which was originally a song slated to land on Tanya Morgan’s 2009 project Brooklynati.
