The Next Project: 2 40's & A Stoop
Firstly, we'd like to say thank you to anybody who listened to, downloaded, or shared our music. Our PAPER CUTS ep mixtape was well received and we're happy with the what it's done so far. It was a long time coming, but now that the ball is finally rolling you can expect a lot more from us in the short future. Which brings me to what I wanted to talk about, our next project: 2 40's & A Stoop.
The title 2 40's & A Stoop was something that just popped in to my mind randomly one day. Myself (Seth) and Grafic would, and still do, grab a couple 40 ouncers of Olde English, find a nice stoop to chill at, and just hang out. The title just seemed so fitting with it's oddly catchy appeal. There was something fun about it, yet still kind of hard, and just very "us" in general. As far as the meaning... well, initially there was no meaning it just sounded cool. I can't act like there was some type of master genious to the title, but now that it's had time to resinate with us a bit, it's even more fitting than I thought. On the stoop we talk about anything from girls and girl problems, to work, to family situations, to money, to goals for our future, all in all just life shit. And that's very reflective to our subject manner in our music.
This project will be a lot longer than the first, probably somewhere around 10-12 songs. And yes there will be a few guest appearances from the likes of our homies JayKin, Jeff Spec, D-City and EpideMIC (Ink Ops) to name a few. We're hoping for a release sometime around the beginning of the new year, but you know how these things go. Regardless, it won't be long, we're working on it right now. We will still be dropping songs/freestyles in the meantime just so you guys don't forget about us! So be on the look out for 2 40's & A Stoop, and once again thank you for checking out PAPER CUTS (If you haven't yet CLICK HERE to download).
