Cormega is offering up his Mega Philosophy LP, released on July 22, via Aura/Slimstyle, for free, full streaming exclusively in The DJBooth.
Speaking with DJBooth, the Queensbridge vet stated, "An artist, a true artist, in one way or another evolves. Mega Philosophy is my evolution. This is the album that I really wanted to show that I’m an artist. I’m not somebody who’s trying to live off of glorifying my past street life, I’m not somebody who’s trying to sensationalize or use beef or conflict or controversy [to sell albums]. I’m trying to show that I’m a creative artist. This is the album that will tell me if I belong on the list of hip-hop's greatest emcees. I’m a lyricist, an MC, but at the core, I'm a poet who recites over a beat."
The project packs 11 original jams, none of which has previously been featured on our pages. Included is lead single "Industry." AZ, Black Rob, Chantelle Nandi, Jarell Perry, Maya Azucena, Nature, Raekwon, Redman and Styles P. make guest appearances on the set, which is produced in its entirety by Large Professor.
