Press Release :
C.R.A.C. is the musical collaboration of producing / emcee Ta’Raach and emcee Blu. C.R.A.C. is an acronym for Collect Respect Anna Check, a name and idealism representing the movement of like-minded musicians, artists, and producers for a structural change in previous stratifications of power and belief systems. The first step in this movement is The Piece Talks, the debut album from C.R.A.C.

Produced by Detroit's finest, Ta'Raach, the musical landscape is reminiscent to early Bomb Squad productions complimented by the 'left-field' humor and sensitivity similar to the work of Prince Paul for De La Soul. Both Ta'Raach and Blu share mic duties, and the chemistry is undeniable. Mainly recorded in just 7 days, the album is more like a musical and spiritual journey that listeners can feel they are a part of.

Tracks such as “Love Don’t” and “Pop Dem Boyz” feature soaring instrumentals teamed with lyrics that invoke much more than what the surface hints to. Others such as “Bullet Through Me” show a distinct psych-enhanced humor that is found throughout The Piece Talks. The process, thought, and flow of The Piece Talks is a step towards the ultimate Lovelution manifested through the music of C.R.A.C.

Any will be aware of Ta'Raach's previous work with the late-great Jay Dee, Platinum Pied Pipers, or his latest release, "The Fevers," and the same will go for fans of Blu's recent release w/ producer, Exile, "Below the Heavens." Regardless of their previous projects, C.R.A.C. is something new and fresh that offers a different and unique perspective to the masses. It radiates a powerful energy and confidence that people will want to study, imitate, and initiate in their every day lives. It speaks to the majority, which lack self-esteem, and opens a path never treaded upon. As one entity, C.R.A.C. is here to stay and for those who aren't on-board, are already late.
