Zo releases a new Limited Vinyl 7″ featuring of Phat Kat & Raashan Ahamd and entitled « Mississip’hip » for announcing his full lenght album for the end of year with Cascade !

This 7-inch single of 2 tracks is available in limited series of 300 copies !

Before reinterpreting the music for a pretty well known classic hip hop album from NY, Will Sessions produced a series of wildly successful live shows for Guilty Simpson, Phat Kat, and Black Milk in their hometown of Detroit in 2009 and 2010. The band had performed dozens of times in previous years within multiple genres–namely funk, jazz, and afrobeat–but had never tackled hip hop until these shows. “Real Sessions” revisits those performances with 10 selected live recordings showcasing their full 8-piece band recrafting beats from Madlib, J Dilla, Black Milk, Mr. Porter, and Nick Speed; with DJ Dez providing his trademark cuts and scratches.
