ALBUM TITLE: Bk 2 My Roots
ARTIST: Oscar P
LABEL: Open Bar Music
RELEASE DATE: May 29, 2012
THE ALBUM: Times change. We get old like a fine wine still aging, but we are not quite ready to close up shop. We take a long hard look and where we started, and how we got here. Long gone are the days of the cassette tape, the 2 inch tape, and the 8 track. While the graduates switch from CDs to laptops, one thing remains the same. The pulse of the city, the people and the music. This is the path I've traveled and my roots revisited. A new collection of collaborations, remixes, and some unreleased material with featured artists Gypsymen, Foremost Poets, Davidson Ospina, Christian Scott, DJ Ax, Charles Dockins, Rainy Payne, DC's Born I Music, Moba Sound and more.
The Truth Only Comes One Way! Play It Loud! One Love. -- Oscar P
