Abstract Rude: New Album Free Track & Tour


Abstract Rude
Los Angeles' Abstract Rude is set to release his Rhymesayers solo debut Rejuvenation on May 5, 2009. Some may have seen Abstract Rude supporting label mate Atmosphere on their most recent U.S. tours but for newcomers, Abstract Rude's history is a long and fabled one in the L.A. hip-hop world. With connections dating back to the Grand Royal mixtapes, Abstract Rude was a scene mainstay at the Good Life Cafe in L.A., an early stomping ground for such luminaries as Jurassic 5 and Freestyle Fellowship in the early-90s. He was spotlighted in the award winning documentary, This is The Life, which chronicled the scene at Good Life. He's also a member of the Abstract Tribe Unique, a collaboration with interpretive dance performance duo Tribe Unique.

Rejuvenation is a focused product of years of hard work. Produced entirely by Vitamin D (G-Unit, Redman, Black Sheep, etc.), the 14 tracks on the record showcase Abstract's singular style and flow, as well as his lyrical prowess. It's a soulful, adventurous ride, with appearances from Aceyalone and Myka 9, as well as up and comers Sahtyre, Busdriver and Alpha MC. It's a diverse statement and one worth hearing.

Abstract Rude will also be touring in May to support the release with Aceyalone, Myka 9, and Dj Drez. Dates available here. You can pre-order Rejuvenation at a discount price here. And you can download the title track "Rejuvenation" for FREE here.

"Abstract Rude will also be touring in May to support the release with Aceyalone, Myka 9, and Dj Drez." Damn! Finally a full Haiku D'etat tour! Seriously, if you don't know already, this is a once-every-5-years opportunity to see the greatest group of MC's ever put together. Drez is one sick ass turntablist as well. True Hip Hop is an underground art form, and these guys have been putting out their own shit without any mainstream support or recognition since at least '91. Can't stress this enough: Ab, Acey, and Mikah 9 take the art of rhyming to a place nobody, I mean NOBODY can touch. Aceyalone especially is without a doubt the most fearsome freestyle MC ever to touch a mic. I mean REAL freestyle, folks, not just lines from his albums mixed up in a different order. Check the Calicomm 2004 comp for the best, maybe the only, kick-ass live hip hop ever released.
