Three years later, & here it is the official debut collaborative album from Planet Asia x G_Force –
Camouflage Jackets.Originally recorded in 2008,G_ & Asia first connected thru MySpace (remember that?) when G was still just 18 years old & living in Eugene, OR& reached out to the Fresno rap veteran.
Asia dug what he heard,& quickly the duo started sending trading back beats & verses to each other.
The tracks that resulted from the sessions were intended to have a few different homes,including a period when they were signed to Talib Kweli’s label, BlackSmith,but were ultimately left in the vault –
never to be heard from again,until now,where they are available, in full, as a free download.
Naturally sample-heavy in nature,the beats on Camo Jackets pull from sources of classic soul, psych rock & even reggae/dub records – & w/ them as his backdrop, Asia delivers one of his most hungry & focused album performances in years w/ his streetwise battle raps & unmistakable cadence. – FRSHSLCTS.com
