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!
