After 10 months of going back and forth with John Turner, Jr., I present to you the album cover for G-Side’s, Block Beattaz, and Slow Motion Soundz most anticipated release of our careers. This cover is only the tip of the iceberg of the artistic value that will be included in this album. A lot of people don’t consider hip hop music a form of art anymore. I pray after 1.1.11 that mood of the music will return to mist of the music buying, listening, and criticism process. Going into this project we felt like we had done accomplished a lot of things based on the artistic value over the political side of the business. We went to Norway without a deal or a million dollars on the glass. The music these guys are producing right now paralleled with the artwork will leave whoever experiences this album in a moved state of mind. Meaning we don’t want to kill your brains cells with Clear Channel formatted songs. Hopefully they will be left feeling this is the best album they have ever heard. Below is another song for me personally that influenced my thinking on this record. 1.1.11 is less than 35 days away.
G-Mane has been doing music in the state Alabama before the south was even noticed by its own inhabitants. A founder of the legendary Slave Kamp, G-Mane brings an approach and experience to music most don’t realize. To know G-Mane is to know what PT calls “The coolest nigga on Earth”. How could he not be. Look at his album cover. Visual DITCing. Cop the album below.
Resurface. The Intro from “Sunday on the Porch”
Above is Mosul, Iraq where I spent the majority of my time in the warzone. Don’t know why I posted this. Maybe just to let you the reader know where my mind is at times. (Fuck Your Feature). This is where Slow Motion Soundz music was played for the first time overseas live. Shout out to DJ Dice D.
This is where I stayed my last year and half in the Army. Daegu, South Korea. It was here that I truly knew the music we were doing was bigger than ever imagined and couldn’t be confined to a regional sound.
Above is leak #20. Below is something for your listening pleasure.

We have been listening to instrumentals for damn near a year now. Every time it would either be yes this feels like One or no this doesn’t feel like the One. In a perfect world there would be a trillion songs on this album or may be just One big song with a trillion variations. Something new happened in this year. We brought in more people who make beats and future producers. We now have more of them than rappers. Today I want to introduce a track @Ceesproduction sent to me and it is very Oneish in my opinion. With that said, follow these instructions. I’m bout to let you hear what the Artwork sound like. After you hear this you will know you have been listening to the album ever since we dropped the first PSA and artwork leak.
1. Get to your favorite location for zoning out.
2. Find your best speakers. Computer, surround sound, earphones etc. You have to really hear this to truly make this work.
