Good Wednesday Morning to our BlackRadioIsBack.com and FuseBox Radio Broadcast crew!
After a few days of being off with the music posts, just wanted to hit folks in the head with the album sampler from London-Born & New York-raised performer/songwriter/rapper Che Grand.
We've rocked various music from him on the radio show for a bit and his upcoming solo album, Everything's Good Ugly, is dropping independently next Monday in conjunction with Believe Digital.
Che Grand's recent focus before the album has been on putting together onpoint live performances, and he's shared the stage with the likes of Kid Cudi, Wale, The Cool Kids, Blu and Tanya Morgan.
According to Che's, the Everything's Good Ugly album is the creative expression of his life story:
"It's about pursuing a dream, while juggling life's ups and downs, relationships and becoming comfortable in new - and sometimes awkward - situations. The topics are relatable, the songs are proactive, the production is rich. Encouraging, honest and funky, this is a natural growth of an individual in audio."
Personally, this album sampler is pretty sweet and makes me look forward to the upcoming album - what do y'all think?
Give it a download below along with the single "Too Much Too Soon" featuring Colin Munroe and check out some videos. Hope you dig it!
