MP3: Has-Lo - "Light Years (J-Zone Remix)"


MP3: Has-Lo - "Light Years (J-Zone Remix)"

Courtesy Mello Music Group.

Has-Lo's new project Conversation B is officially in-stores everywhere today on CD, Limited Edition Magenta Vinyl, and Digitally. The new album is a complete re-envisioning of his March debut In Case I Don't Make It. To celebrate we're giving away a free download of Has-Lo Light Years (J-Zone Remix).

"Light Years" is J-Zone's vision of the track Kinetic Energy.   J-Zone (who just released his book "Root for the Villain: Rap, Bullshit, and a Celebration of Failure") stirs the music from a swirling mass of potential into kinetic blend of cries, screams, stomps, crashes, drums, and bass that Has-Lo bombs over like Hasan Izz-Al-Din.  Has proceeds to stroll through his worldview, spitting politics and social commentary in the vernacular of the gods.  The result is a track brimming with energy and sharp word play.

About The Album:
Has-Lo, the Philadelphia based emcee/producer who brought you the critically acclaimed album In Case I Don't Make It, is back! Conversation B is a complete re-envisioning of ICIDMI. Exile, J-Zone, Oddisee, Kev Brown, Eric Lau, Apollo Brown and more lend their extensive production powers to the project. It is eclectic, melodic, chaotic, bleak and brutal all at once. The journey of a man at the tipping point continues...

With "Gotta Let Me Go" Quan displays his gift of story telling, as he reminds us all about the death, or jail trap that comes with the street life and why he has made the decision to put it behind him; over a soulful 70's feeling track produced by C.O.D.
