Combining the freshest man-made beats with ingenius harmonic horn lines and ill lyrical delivery, not to mention the only hiphop sousaphonist/composer/human DJ ever, "Unlearn" also features appearances by some of the most forward-thinking minds in music, including:
Talib Kweli of Reflection Eternal/Black Star - Undoubtedly one of the most ground-breaking, driven, absolutely illest MC's in the world. Reppin Brooklyn, NY. His new album with DJ Hi-Tek is in stores now on Rawkus Records.
Mike Ladd - Cambridge-bred Bronx-residing poet whose lyrical mastery will leave you speechless after taking you on a journey around the universe. A true wordsmith. His latest project is The Infesticons, who just released "Gun Hill Road" on Big Dada Records. His solo album "Welcome to the Afterfuture" is diverse, moving, frequently hilarious and always serious.
DJ Skooly - Reppin Chicagos own Platter Pirates, the most-feared battle crew in the MidWest. The youngest man appearing on the album. If you sleep on Skooly, hell probably wake you up in 3 years by cracking you on the skull with his turntables, and leave the world's tightest mixtape shoved in your ear.
Ike Willis - Frank Zappa's long-time vocalist blessed us with a track that has received the most enthusiastic replies from our fans. We're just glad he could shake things up a bit. Ike can sing his ass off, nuff said.
