The Blackalicious member gears up for another solo release.
Gift of Gab has announced his new solo album Next Logical Progression, releasing on March 27th via Quannam Projects.
The LP is set to feature guest appearances from George Clinton, Latyrx, Martin Luther, Zumbi, Raashan Ahmad, Samantha Kravitz and Ms K. Gab linked up with musician/producer G Koop, which he explains was a perfect match. "I would take a recorder around and hum bass lines, piano figures and guitar riffs into it, then I'd go over to Koop's crib and say, 'Play this,'" said Gab in a press release. "I've always heard music in my head, but I never knew how to get it out. I finally got to express that."
"I love making albums," he added. "To me, it's like making a movie or writing a play, creating a body of work. If you have the ability to do that, why would you ever stop?"
