Interesting project I had emailed to me yesterday. I haven’t listened to it all the way through, but it sounds good so far, plus I’m a little strapped for time.
Here it is world. My first release. I hope it becomes the soundtrack for your summer. That was always the intention. Nothing would make me happier than people listening to this 5, 10, 20 years down the line and remembering the Summer of ‘08.
There are AT LEAST 6 more tracks that will be leaked one by one over the next few months, so stay tuned!
THE GREEN ALBUM is a project I’ve had mostly finished for 3 years now. It’s a full-length Hip-Hop remix album over all Al Green sample-made beats. It will be the first official music project I have shared with the world. I truly love it and I want to share it with as many people as possible.
Most of the songs being remixed come from hip hop’s “golden era.” Artist such as De La Soul, Mos Def, Big L, Ghostface, Method Man, Notorious B.I.G., Pharcyde, Nas, AZ, Pharoahe Monch, Fugees, Jay-Z, Das Efx, Mobb Deep, and Busta Rhymes. I added a few other artists that I’m a fan of such as MF DOOM, Saukrates, and FINALE. I will almost definitely make a few more tracks in addition to those.
The profits from this project will be going to STAY TRUE, a non-profit founded in Philadelphia by my brother, Nir Saar. Check the link above for more info! It’s one of the coolest non-profits and I’m extremely proud to be part of it.
Their mission is to increase social awareness and engagement of those students that are most affected by the ailments of society. I STRONGLY encourage you to read more about it and get involved in any way you see fit!
Download the album here. All I ask is that if you like it, please post it on the blog. It would do wonders for the exposure of the album as well as the cause.
