What happens when hip hop meets Motown?
You get The Motown Years by underground hip hop producer, Cartel (Hoodgrown Productions) who has laced tracks for underground stalwarts such as Stack Bundles, K. Sparks, VVS Verbal, Mallz and more. This FREE album combines various Motown acapellas and original sample free production along with some of the best upcoming rappers (Mallz, Esko, Star Emcee, Froz, Marcii, and Rembrandt of Scholarly Pursuits) to create crowd-pleasing music that is both new and familiar at the same time.
“I came across a treasure trove of Motown acapellas and decided to utilize them in a project,” states Cartel. “Instead of my usual sample based production, I decided to experiment a little and combine non sample production with each sampled Motown chorus.”
Cartel is currently working on his upcoming retail album, The Last Of A Dying Breed” which will feature Lord Jamar of Brand Nubian, Steele of Smif n Wesson, Donny Goines, K.Sparks, Mallz and more.
Note: This album has not been mastered!
