Rediculus Releases "Masters of Conversation: Punchlines and Parables"


Rediculus Releases "Masters of Conversation: Punchlines and Parables"

Courtesy Park Street PR.

Rediculus has released the next edition of his Masters of Conversation production series titled Punchlines and Parables, quickly following up his critically acclaimed Walking Down Broken Paths instrumental album and marking the 4th edition of the production series.  Rediculus, who resides in Chicago, Illinois, just put the final touches on the last mixes literally a few weeks ago and is now preparing to delight his fans with his latest studio album which he hopes will expand his fan base and get his music heard by more people around the globe.

The first single, "Halo (Pain is Love)" which was released last month to rave reviews, features a hard blaring horn sample with a neck snapping snare to drive the track and longtime collaborator and fellow Chicagoan Prome on the microphone dropping lyrical napalm on the track.

The new single "Picture Perfect" has a soulful backdrop and smooth knocking drums and features verses from vocal giants Sha Stimuli, Sadat X of Brand Nubian fame and Emilio Rojas spitting nothing short of classic verses.

The album, "Masters of Conversation: Punchlines and Parables", is 17 tracks all produced by Rediculus and features some of hip hop's hottest MC's such as Ruste Juxx, Craig G, Sha Stimuli, Emilio Rojas, Chubb Rock, Koncept and The Audible Doctor from Brown bag All Stars, Big Dutty Deeze, Chaundon, Notoriety, Stumik Icewater, Sadat X, Shabaam Sahdeeq, Red Eye, Pair-a-Dyce, Nine and many more.

The album itself is both a return to the "Golden Era" and a glimpse into the future of hip hop.  Soulful samples scream and wail throughout the project, backed by growling bass lines and driving drum tracks with custom kicks and snares that showcase the wide variety of influences in Rediculus's life and music.

Rediculus is quoted as describing the project with the following statement; "This album is going to really make people think about what they listen to and show people that you can reach consumers without watering down our culture.  We have a host of people in the culture who are over 30 and want music that they can relate too, something with more substance that addresses the issues in their lives.  The current trend of making songs about negative images backed by empty music is coming to an end and this project should definitely help drive the nails into that coffin.  People want something smarter and I'm here to give it to them"

The album is digitally distributed globally by Island/Def Jam and will include several limited edition runs of physical copies, with a UK exclusive edition containing a few remixes Rediculus did for Big Dutty Deeze and American exclusive artwork for his US edition. People are encouraged to follow Rediculus on Twitter, keep in touch with him on Facebook, check out his Bandcamp page and visit his website for more information and to keep up on the latest news with Rediculus and all of Knowledge Giving Birth Productions.
