A founding member of Souls of Mischief and The Hieroglyphics, rapper and producer A-Plus is ready to unleash the first of a series of free instrumental projects. Premiered this morning by PotholesInMyBlog, Think Tank highlights A-Plus "s sample-chopping and beat-blending skills - from the triumphant horns and vocal coos on "Always Be the Same," to multi-layered guitar picks on"Nothing At All," to the lonely, crying strings on "Hear Me Out." As A-Plus says, "One reason I chose the name Think Tank was because I like my tracks to emote and to make people feel as they listen."
It "s already been a remarkably busy year for A-Plus. Just a week ago, a deluxe 20th anniversary edition of Souls of Mischief "s classic "93 Til Infinity was released by Get On Down, and last month Okayplayerpremiered another one of his solo projects, Molly "s Dirty Water, an experimental trip into dub-step and electronic. A-Plus explains, "I made Think Tank with the purpose of letting people know that although I have stepped into a different realm with my production, my roots are in hip-hop, and I "m still a hip-hop producer. And always will be."
