We’re about to finally bless the world with a lot of music. It got to the point where it wasn’t fair to the fans or to myself to have to keep on waiting. I understand that labels have obligations, but it was difficult to have fans coming up to you and asking when I was going to get a release date. There’s a lot of crazy records I got to take with me. There’s a J Dilla record that I got with the blessing of DJ House Shoes. Tracks from DJ Khalil, Lord Finesse, 9th Wonder, Mr. Porter, Focus, basically a who’s who of underground hip-hop.
He also spoke of Dr. Dre records. But Bishop has been extremely quiet except for a few leaks like this one and his album The Reformation is nowhere in sight. Bishop announced today that a new project called The Shawshank Redemption/Angola 3 is due in September.
“Get ‘Em Girl” must be the record he got from House Shoes. Is there a Dilla expert in the house who can tell us if this beat is new? Talib Kweli says the song is “OLD as hell.”
