Producer Amaeus360 released his sprawling Boom Bap opus The MPC Jedi via Soulspazm today (5/12/2023). The headbanging Ras Kass and M.O.P-anchored album opener “How The Block Sound” received an animated visual treatment by Carlito Way (who also illustrated characters for Adult Swim’s hit TV show The Boondocks). The final product can be seen in the song’s official music video, shared this morning via the self-proclaimed Beat King’s YouTube channel.
Inspired by Pete Rock‘s PeteStrumentals, and DJ Premier‘s New York Reality Check 101, The MPC Jedi features a cross-generational lineup of spitters across the album’s 18 tracks, including newcomers Lil Dee and Nems, as well as legends such as Masta Ace, Sticky Fingaz, Keith Murray, among others. The album follows Amadeus360’s 2020 collaborative album with Ruste JuxxJames Brown of tha Underground, and his 2021 full-length collaboration with Termanology360.
