Before I press play on this project, I want to give it to you all. Albe Back has been doing his thing ever since he played Brooklyn In T.I.’s starring movie ATL. Now he and the fellas at 2Dopeboyz have lined up an album for your enjoyment. But I’m gonna let Shake properly intro it:
We’ve been warning y’all about this for some time. And now… the time has come for AlBe to bless your iPods with some great music! A marriage of boom bap, spoken word, live instrumentation and classic quotes, Raphael Dela Ghetto (shouts to those that catch the reference) is something I’m very proud to say that I had a part in helping create.
