Aceyalone, the legendary emcee and founding member of seminal rap groups Freestyle Fellowship, Haiku D'Etat and Project Blowed, has announced the follow-up to 2009's Aceyalone & The Lonely Ones, titled Leanin' on Slick. Since his formative days of battling at the Good Life Cafe circa 1989, Aceyalone is a forefather of the West Coast underground rap scene that spawned the emergence and success of groups like The Pharcyde, Jurassic 5 and his own Freestyle Fellowship, whose 1993 record Innercity Griots is an undeniable classic of the genre.
Leanin' moves on from the doo-wop tones of Loney Ones in favor of jazz and funk influenced beats to aupport his signature tight rhymes and bouncing-ball flow. The album features 13 dynamic tracks with frequent collaborator BIONIK, as well as Daniel Merriweather, Treasure Davis and, most notably, singer Cee Lo.
