One of the biggest complaints I heard about Baltimore Commercial Break 2 is that it was too damn long. I mean, it was seventeen tracks of music and clocked in at about 50 minutes. Over the past year or so, I’ve played with the idea of whittling it down a bit. Today, I’ve finally released BCB 2: The Choice Cuts over on Audiomack.
I went into BCB 2 wanting to speak my peace, but also highlight some of my favorite Baltimore-area artists. So in paring down the album, I reduced it to mainly the features.
Well, I know that some of the story will be lost in doing so. However, BCB 2 wasn’t just about me. None of my projects are, but especially not BCB 2. It was an album for all of my Baltimore-area creatives who wanted to do something different, something more home-centric. I wanted to highlight the Baby Kahlos and the True Gods and the Maurice Valentinos. I wanted to show that Baltimore doesn’t have just one sound.
I also dropped BCB 2, like Songs For… 2, as a sort of protest music.
It says “even if you think less of me, I know that I’m awesome. I know that I’m the shit. I know my life matters. I know I won’t stop creating just because you say so. I know that family and friends are important. And I know that Baltimore is amazing AF.” So please join me in the re-release of BCB 2 and support dope music in all its forms.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all who supported this project and made it possible.
