In 2010, world famous Visionaries crew member LMNO accomplished an amazing feat — he released ten albums in one year; with the likes of producers DJ Babu of the Beat Junkies, Kev Brown and more. One of the ten albums was produced by the veteran producer/emcee, Mr Brady. LMNO and Mr Bradyâ€™s album received rave reviews and prompted fans to blog about how well the two sounded together. The positive response inspired these two workhorses to feature one another on each otherâ€™s albums, ever since.
Fast forward to 2015, LMNO & Mr Brady are back with a new full-length album titled, 25/8. Between the two of them, LMNO & Mr Brady have released at least 40 albums or more, hence the title of the album, 25/8. Instead of having 24/7 hours/days in a week, LMNO & Mr Brady put in so much work they need 25/8 for all the overtime they put in the studio and tours they have done.
For this gritty heartfelt album, young up-and-coming producer Asethic from Brooklyn, New York, provides all the beats and the perfect landscape for these two seasoned emcees to paint vivid, truthful pictures with their words. 25/8 is an effortlessly cohesive album and possibly the best work LMNO & Mr Brady have ever done together.
When Asethic reached out to LMNO and sent him a batch of beats, he asked Mr Brady to come record him on the track â€œRearrangeâ€, which turned out to be their first single. What was supposed to be a feature turned into a collaborative full-length album within a matter of a few months. The process for this album entailed producer Asethic sending beats, then LMNO & Mr Brady would pick one and write to it on the spot and promptly record it.
â€œIt was a very natural process,â€ Mr Brady said. LMNO added, â€œNothing was rushed, everything happened the way it was supposed to and it is evident when you hear the album.â€
So put on your headphones, or turn it up in your car, and enjoy this grimy journey called — 25/8!
