Again, this week's track comes by way of Cos-sign Collective from an email that was sent out on the new single release from the highly anticipated Mega Philosophy record by Cormega produced by Large Professor. It's set to be released this summer 2014! According to the iTunes page the expected release date is July 22, 2014. Not sure if that's just for iTunes or if that includes the physical copy as well. The cover art for the "Industry" single is designed by Ibrahim Sincere and depicts legends that have passed on in a "last supper" scene.
In the ride I must've replayed the Soundcloud audio over a dozen times. Its no problem waiting on a new Mega project considering the high standard of album's released prior with records like Born & Raised, The Testament, The True Meaning, The Realness, and compilation projects and features in between. The solo records especially hold serious replay value... so for future projects the wait is worth it especially after listening to ((Industry)) and being aware of the ((Sugar Ray & Hearns)) history between Mega & Large Pro. I think of tracks like ((Journey)) I heard years prior with the Large Pro verse and then again on the Born & Raised record w/ Mega only and a number of other collaborative efforts from years passed such as ((The Come Up)) and also Mega's feature on Large Pro's last album Professor @ Large. The history is there even beyond those projects for both Hip Hop alumni Mega and Extra P... so it's a record I encourage you all to make note of this summer amongst several other producer/MC projects that have been released this year (and that are set to come out) including the Good Morning Vietnam III record that I'm also looking forward to from the collaborative force of MF Grimm and Drasar Monumental.
So with that said, I'll leave you all with a few notes & links on the upcoming Mega Philosophy record, including an article which Mega shares a record execs response to him playing ((Industry)) for them. I hope you all take the time to look up Ibrahim Sincere and support the this record! Til' the next update...
Peace to B.Dune and the Fresh Produce rotation live on mixlr for rotating the ((Industry)) single as part of the 1Track@aTime segment on FP Show No. 15!
