Collaborations like these were once ncommonplace in hip-hop. Rappers often paired off with a single producer, who would craft the entirety of a project’s beats and help execute the final vision. (Think KRS-One and Scott La Rock, Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre.) Producers and MCs would come to be defined as duos; once they drifted apart to work with new collaborators, fans would pine for a return to their original form. Eastside 4 & Somerset Jaye aim to recapture that feeling on their first full-length collaboration! They approached the record as an experiment not only in sound, but in process as well. Made mostly in Detroit, the new songs were largely written and recorded on the spot.
