Download Dreams Still Inspire Album By Abstract Mindstate
Don’t feel bad if you never heard of Abstract Mindstate, a Chicago conscious rap duo who were active during the late ’90s and early ’00s. The group never made a huge impact when they were first around, but early collaborator Kanye West always loved them. West is about to release his own album Donda this week, and he’s also spearheaded the reunion of Abstract Mindstate, and he’s produced an entire album for the duo. It’ll come out in a couple of weeks.
Abstract Mindstate is a duo from Chicago made up of E.P. da Hellcat and Olskool Ice-Gre. They recently reunited after a decade and a half apart and they have announced that on August 6th, their new album Dreams Still Inspire will drop. The reason you’re hearing about it all of a sudden is that it’s going to be the first release from YZY SND. You might remember that West filed a trademark for it three and a half years ago and last summer, he revealed a proposed roster for it. The duo appeared there. More big news is that Kanye is actually producing the entire album and is listed as a feature on the LP’s penultimate track, ‘The Brenda Song’.
The duo formed at the turn of the century and released just one album, 2001’s We Paid Let Us In!, before disbanding in 2005. Guests on the duo’s comeback record include model, actor, and influencer Luka Sabbat and frequent Kanye West collaborator Tony Williams. This Friday, July 23, Kanye West is releasing his own album Donda via G.O.O.D. Music and Def Jam. They released their first single today called ‘A Wise Tale’ and you can hear it below. This sounds like an old school, soulful Ye beat.
