Illmaculate and G_Force have just released their new album "The Green Tape" for free to download.
Visit http://www.freshselects.net/illmaculate-x-g_force-the-green-tape to get it.
The album is a track-by-track reworking of Al Green's 2008 hit album "Lay It Down" which was produced by ?uestlove and James Poyser of The Roots.
The Green Tape's release coincides with the rebirth of the FRSH SLCTS (FreshSelects.com) website, a local music promotion blog that is coming out of a year and half online hiatus.
Guest appearances on the album include Illmaculate's crew, Sandpeople, Braille of Lightheaded, Theory Hazit of Humble Beast, Epp of TxE.
The album is an absolutely dope project from two of the more talented hip hop artists here in Portland. G_Force has reworked and resampled Al Green's momentous comeback, and Illmaculate, an award-winning veteran on the battle rap scene, put his words, with new meaning, to the beats.
Just listen to it. It's free. What do you have to lose?
Illmaculate will also be battling 9DM at the Bridge City Battle on April 22 at Branx, 315 SE 3rd St. The battle, featuring a number of other performances that include Sandpeople, an 8 producer beat battle and more, will be hosted by Cool Nutz and DJ Fatboy.
