Now for some much deserved bloglight on longtime collabo artist Sole Profit, who I’ve been making tracks with since hooking up through mp3.com (remember when that was THE music site?).
This Californian cat – currently living in Atlanta – is seriously one of the nicest mc’s you never heard. Hard hitting punchlines, story telling skills, versatile flows, a sense of humour and the ability to translate a wide variety of ideas and emotions into dope rhymes.
Sole Profit first created a buzz in Fresno, Ca. after putting out his debut album Soul Searching. In 2005 his big break seemed to have arrived when he won the national Hip-Hop Supastar competition, hosted by Xzibit. This got him signed to Sony/BMG plus a pimped out ride by – yup those guys – West Coast Customs. However due to label politics (industry rule #4080..) the deal turned sour and he went independent again, releasing a 2nd album with fellow Cali mc The Relic as The K.E.Y. in 2007 (Children Of the Corn – 3 tracks prod by yours truly).
Enough talk. Time to face the music.
