STREAM "The Ashby Project" From Kay & King Mason x The Kashmere Don
FWMJ's Rappers I Know keeps the heat coming with The Ashby Project from Kay and King Mason, starring The Kashmere Don. Combining the pioneering sound of harpist Dorothy Ashby with H-Town's trill vernacular and the signature thump of J Dilla, the 12-track album arrived on Monday sporting an impressive list of features including Chip Fu, Sy Smith, The K-Otix, Toby Hill, Marium Echo and Nicole Hurst. The Ashby Project is a multi-faceted gem punctuated by top notch wordplay and cinematic production that matches the seamless arranging and improvisational acumen of the Robert Glasper Experiment, D'Angelo & The Vanguard and other leaders at the helm of all things funky and forward in black music. Easily another homerun for the Rappers I Know catalog, the compilation from Kay, King Mason and The Kashmere Don is an emphatic statement that raises the bar and challenges rap to rise to the occasion. Best of all? The entire thing is available for free. Check out the tracks below to stream the full release. Download The Ashby Project via Bandcamp. Get more via rappersiknow.com. Don't sleep.
