Welcome to Underground Fossils, brought to you by Dimxsk and Trylemma. The purpose of this blog is to assist in the sharing of out of print and/or rare examples of the hip hop genre. We believe that every release we post is an integral part of history and deserves to be heard by older fans as well as new seekers. We do not post or encourage the posting of anything that can be bought easily from the artist, those can be found elsewhere. Furthermore, if any artist who is featured here wishes not to share their material we will remove it immediately. Most of the rips found here were made by other people, but some of them were made by us. We are not sound engineers, so while the quality will usually be 320 kbps, they will be recorded from the source material as is. Please message us if you are an engineer and want wav files to master. Enjoy!

PS: We also want to thank all of the women and men before us who shared music in this way. Your work made our collections what they are today, and we are grateful.

Everybody Knows - Traveler Music Pt. 2 (2012)

Another Friday, another upload. Today's entry is Everybody Knows' "Traveler Music Pt. 2" from 2012.

Everybody Knows, now going by Eiji Kwan, is a busy and multifaceted man. The rapper hails from Hawaii so he has ties to the Lightsleepers crew. He's released projects with Grimm Image and LA2TheBay so he has connects with the Cali underground. He currently resides in Portland, OR and is part of the Proper Knocks collective. He raps, he sings, he directs, he's part of various groups (Feo Faces, 7th Deadly, Big Bang,) and he's of course best known for his decade+ of battling - freestyle and written. 

"Traveler Music Pt. 2" is a collection of 7 tracks that, with the exception of the opener "Armageddon" (which was uploaded to EK's Soundcloud,) was only available on the physical cd version of EK's 2012 album, "Alexander the Liar" (released via Grimm Image.) Since the CD is no longer being sold, we bring it to you now.

It's a shame that this was never released digitally. All 7 tracks are EK greatness - slightly off-kilter, laid back (though usually pretty technical) rhymes over a multitude of instrumental styles. Features include Nabahe, Cease2Exist, K-The-I???, and Tommy V. I'm not exactly sure if "Traveler Music Pt. 1" actually exists - I for one have never heard or seen it. If anyone has, drop a line below. 

Enjoy the weekend! We've got some news coming next week regarding a small project we've been working on!
