I’m honored to share that KRS-One used one of my beats on his new album.
The song is called “Think Bigger” and it’s the final song on his 24th studio album titled IMAMCRU12. I produced the beat for “Think Bigger” with Elan Morrison, who also played keys on the track. Ian Stewart and Tyler Gasek recorded trumpet and saxophone. Miles Lally played bass guitar. It’s always challenging for me to let go of beats because I rap too, but when the teacha wanted to use it, it was an easy call.
In the Spring of 2021, I collaborated with KRS-One on my “From the Woods” remix single and was able to develop a deeper relationship from that. When the request came for beats for his album, I submitted nothing but my best.
This milestone puts the Berkshires on the map for Hip Hop and represents the community that we are building around my music. This would not have happened without the support of my community. Thanks for supporting the dream.
OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE FROM KRS-ONE
Yes! It is true! KRS-One’s 24th album “I M A M C R U 1 2” drops on Tuesday, February 22nd, 2022. Obviously, the title speaks for itself. This is an emcee’s album. Here, over the span of 14 amazingly produced songs, KRS-One unleashes a barrage of the rawest rhyme-styles in modern times!
Songs like “The Beginning” and “Achieving The Levels” (both produced by SUN-One) and “Drop Another Break” (produced by KPrymeTheJaeger) clearly show that KRS-One’s rhyme-skills have not faded or deteriorated at all! In fact, it seems like he’s getting better. Previously released songs on the album like “Krazy” (produced by Pascal) and “Knock Em Out” (produced by SUN-One), and “Have To Wait” (produced by DJ Static), all of which were first featured in the short film “Save The Studio” directed and edited by Tyme Journey, have already grabbed the attention of Hip Hop heads everywhere. Other songs on the album like “Club Rippa” (produced by Pascal) and “Can You Dance” and “Wet It Up” (both produced by SUN-One) show that KRS-One has no plans for retiring any time soon. I M A M C R U 1 2? Don’t miss out on this amazing album, or the tour following it. Real Hip Hop is alive and well!
