Buck 65 gives new LP away for free and it's awesome(dl link)

Post by Darwinist » Sun Aug 31, 2008 8:12 am

Came across this on another forum and decided to spread this far and wide. I´m about halfway through the album and it fucking rocks. One of the best releases of the year IMO, and not just in indie hip-hop, but just music in general. And it's just the first part of a trilogy that will be released online for free!

Here's the original message I found on Sole's forum:

Hey,

Word from the big man himself - here's the link to the new Buck album, in 'authorised leak' style. It's the first in a series of three, and the rest will come shortly. I can safely say that this is absolutely insane. Some of the best music I've heard for a long, long time and those who were into Vertex (so most people!) will find a lot to enjoy here. It flows as a non stop track, and there is just so much happening and well, I'll leave the rest to you!

It does have some guests - there are two people I'm not familiar with at this point (although I believe the woman is Claire Berest, she was on Secret House Against The World), as well as Doseone.
...And me! I made the intro using beat parts he sent me and the track that comes in at 23:00 (on both, I edited the pieces he sent and added the rest, whether it was cuts, more edits or basslines or whatever - I'm still stunned that I was a part of it... There will be more to come too!). I had to mention it!

So get it and enjoy! It destroys. You'll like it.

Here's 'Dirtbike' (1/3)

I urge everyone to give it a listen even if you aren't into hip-hop in general, some really good sound design and beat compositions.

Congrats in advance, dude. I'm downloading it now.

I've been listening to b65 for a minute! Was introduced to him by a UK partner of mine. I really dig what he does.
peace,

buck 65 grew up in a small town not far from here.

its awesome when you grow up watching a local artist blow up into the scene, especially in a place as small as nova scotia.
