New video from Stalley, one of my favorite artists coming up right now and good friend. This dude is true talent.
The album by Ski Beatz “Twilight Zone” has been pretty hush until now. I played bass on all of it and help write a lot of the music. I can’t divulge the artists on it yet but all I can say is it is going to be big. I am really proud of the music, definitely some of the best work we have done. Will keep you posted on release date soon as I get confirmation.

Finally off tour back in NYC hustling as always. Since returning home I have been working non stop on various recording projects and doing a shows all over. Did a track for Talib Kweli’s next album yesterday, working with Ski Beatz on different stuff ie. Dynasty Electric and Jim Jones. Also performing live with Idle Warship, Talib Kweli and Res’s band featuring some of my favorite musicians to play with: Daru Jones, Yuki Hirano, and John Cave. Band is sounding out of control. Rocking Southpaw tonight with that lineup.

On another note, my brother Olamide Faison released his first solo album on Tuesday. It is a live album recorded at the Bitter End in NYC featuring myself on bass, Bert Price on keys, and Jamal Hampton on drums. The Bitter End is like our second home. We play there almost every Tuesday, when we are around of course.

We have physical copies available in person and should have them up online for delivery soon. By the end of the day you will be able to download the album at the store section here.

I am real proud of this recording. Please support real artistry by buying it. PEACE!
