From Melanie J Cornish:

The Aztext Gear Up For "Who Cares If We're Dope Part 2"

The Aztext are no strangers to the Hip-Hop scene, having shared the stage with the likes of One Be-Lo, Zion I, Krumb Snatcha, Afrika Bambatta, Snoop Dogg, Planet Asia, Wordsworth, Akrobatik, Mac Lethal, Q-Unique, and Brother Ali.

After releasing the first installment of their WHO CARES IF WE'RE DOPE with producer E-Train to stellar reviews the prolific Vermont duo are gearing up to release their 'second episode.' This project sees the duo, Learic and Pro team up with San Francisco head-nod King, Touchphonics for the five track EP.

The EP, which will be released through Elevated Press Records on February 22nd, embraces a variety of sounds as The Aztext display their lyrical capabilities while working with selected producers. Allowing themselves the chance to dabble with sounds and bring on board different producers for each Episode, The Aztext are giving the listener the opportunity to share their studio experience as their sound evolves.

To allow people to experience what is in store with WHO CARES IF WE'RE DOPE, The Aztext are unleashing a track from the EP which will validate their mic presence as well as their genuine appreciation for the Hip-Hop culture.


"Who Cares If We're Dope Vol.2, for me, was a much needed return to hip hop after taking a break from the genre for a while. This EP has a different sound from a lot of the stuff out right now and each song has a different sound from the others on the EP. Some how though, Vol. 2 still maintains a natural flow where you can tell all the tracks fit together."  -Touchphonics

"Who Cares if We're Dope Vol.2 showcases exactly what we were hoping to accomplish with our Seasons concept.  This Episode has certain tracks, that we might have never consider jumping on, had it not been for Touchphonics' influence... When a producer doesn't have to consider the 'feel' of the overall album, they can be themselves and truly bring their own vibe.  We look forward to collaborating with musicians of all genres as the Seasons roll by - but in Volume 2, we found sound that we might have to revisit over and over!" - Pro

"This project allowed us to do what we could never do on an individual album.  Each EP is like us being in a room with that producer making music.  We've always enjoyed working with each producer on our last 2 albums but this allows us the chance to have each of those connections stand alone as separate pieces but all under the same umbrella, which is depicted as 'the season.'  It allows the listener to find which particular sound they might prefer rather than spending their $ on one album."  - Learic
