Two of hip-hop’s underground finest—Gensu Dean and Planet Asia—have teamed up for Abrasions. The 17-track offering is produced entirely by Dean, who has stepped up his game using the classic SP1200. It shows in the first preview, “Faces on the Dollar,” where a unique blend of samples and rugged drums bring back a vintage hip-hop feel. On the other hand, Planet Asia comes forth with poignant rhymes about staying on the grind and making money.
Abrasions, which is due out on February 26, will have guest appearances from David Banner, Tragedy Khadafi, Rogue Venom and more. Check out “Faces on the Dollar” below and be sure to pre-order the project on iTunes here.
