Two unsung heroes from two of Michigan’s most influential crews – T. Calmese (aka Illite of the subterraneous crew) and Vaughan T. (of the Athletic Mic League) – combine forces to author a coming of age story inspired by the infamous era of high top fades, eye brow parts, and house parties.
This time in history is know as the “New Jack Swing“ era, and the two search their souls not the vintage store to evoke its spirit. The album revolves around life, love, women and fashion as a solute to artists such as Teddy Riley, Bobby Brown, Michael Jackson, New Edition and Kid n Play who made songs that everyone could relate to.
In addition to being conceptually refreshing, the album is just as musically intriguing as producers Vaughan T, 14KT, Nick Speed (G-Unit), ZO!, and Forekast sample and “flip” classic new jack swing records in a way that keeps listeners engaged.
Features and contributors include: Buff 1, Mayer Hawthorne, Big Tone, 14kt, Ro Spit, Nick Speed, Aloe Blacc, Zo!, Ella, and Sole Deacon.
