The Hawthorne Headhunters is a project made up of the individuals; Stoney Rock, Ced No and Proh Mic. The project was conceived in Ced’s Studio in that special place between Long Beach and Los Angeles – Hawthorne, California. The St. Louis natives Ced and Veto, and Seattle transplant, Proh Mic locked it down under the shine of Hollywood Park and created some sounds in the great traditions of musical heavyweight projects such as Funkadelic, Headhunters, Soulquarians, Native Tongues Posse and Bloomfield, Kooper, Stills’ Super Session. Crossing the lines between the Southern influenced tastes of the producer/singer/rapper Stoney Rock, keyboard and studio controller Ced No, fused with the next level northern bounce of rapper/producer Proh Mic, the HH’s is at the crossroads of funk, soul, jazz and hip hop from players already years deep into the game. Look for the album to drop later this year on the new HVW8 records imprint.
Moovmnt shouts out to Sa-Ra, Kissey, A.Cain, &Dam Funk for this one..
It’s frankly weird that an artist like Q-Tip, with his long and succesfull history, innovation and sheer quality should end up without a label after the fiasco that arose from releasing his frankly brilliant and highly bootlegged Kamal The Abstract album that there you go. So here is a Q-Tip album, not a finished bells and whistles album but a mixtape that basically follows up on the kind of material he was doing as Kamal. It’s excellent, a mixture of Ummah style neo abstract jazz-funk pieces, old school Tribe called quest beat, boom bip and the intelligence you expect from Q-Tip.
It’s grown up hip hop with an ear for the richness of black music – jazz funk and psychedelic rock all feature heavily in the music, with high quality artists, such as Andre 3000, Busta Rhymes, D’Angelo, Erykah Badu and others. Get it on WarpMart.
