Abstract Rude - Rejuvenation

Abstract Rude Rejuvenation
Abstract Rude - Rejuvenation
(CD/2xLP) Rhymesayers, 2009-05-05

As a product of the legendary Goodlife open mic sessions, Abstract Rude splashed onto the scene in 1994 as part of the famed Project Blowed crew that included LA's Freestyle Fellowship and Aceyalone. As one half of the A-Team (with Aceyalone), one third of Haiku D'Etat (with Aceyalone & Myka 9) and frontman of his group Abstract Tribe Unique (ATU), Ab Rude has endeared himself to fans worldwide through consistent touring and genre defining albums such as 1999's South Central Thynk Tank (currently out of print). Once signed to the Beastie Boys Grand Royal imprint, Ab has readied himself to re-emerge with Rhymesayers Entertainment and his most consistent and focused work to date, Rejuvenation. Produced entirely by Seattle super producer Vitamin D (G-Unit, Redman, Young Buck, Gift of Gab, Choklate, Lifesavas, Black Sheep, etc.), Rejuvenation is a hard hitting soulful ryde showcasing Ab Rude's distinct and unlimited vocal styling.

Press Release :

Los Angeles’ Abstract Rude is set to release his Rhymesayers solo debut, Rejuvenation on May 5th, 2009. Some may have seen Abstract Rude supporting label mate Atmosphere on their most recent US tours but for newcomers, Abstract Rude’s history is a long and fabled one in the LA hip-hop world. With connections dating back to the Grand Royal mixtapes, Abstract Rude was a scene mainstay at the Good Life Cafe in LA, an early stomping ground for such luminaries as Jurassic Five and Freestyle Fellowship in the early 90s. He was spotlighted in the award winning documentary, This is The Life, which chronicled the scene at Good Life. He’s also a member of the Abstract Tribe Unique, a collaboration with interpretive dance performance duo Tribe Unique.

Rejuvenation is a focused product of years of hard work. Produced entirely by Vitamin D (G-Unit, Redman, Black Sheep, etc..), the 14 tracks on the record showcase Abstract’s singular style and flow, as well as his lyrical prowess. It’s a soulful, adventurous ride, with appearances from Aceyalone and Myka 9, as well as up and comers Sahtyre, Busdriver and Alpha MC. It’s a diverse statement and one worth hearing.

Abstract Rude will also be touring in may to support the release with Aceyalone, Myka 9, and Dj Drez. Dates to come.
