#DXCLUSIVE: Azure Drops "Godspeed" Project
With Clyde Shankle, IAMSU! and P-Lo.
2 and the Earth Azure has dropped a new solo project entitled good Luck, premiering exclusively on HipHopDX. The West Coast rapper/producer's latest single is a version of the 10-track effort that was created during the last year.
"Taking a break from the tour of life in the past year allowed me to enter into a place of focus, I haven't had in half a decade!" Azure said DX. "It allowed me to be more present in a very human way and deepen my personal relationships, even some that had gone dormant."
For the HBK Gang member, the good Luck is a production of maturation.
"The music is more than a reflection of a man maturing during hectic times of a young person's roaring through life without money, and without much thought to the future," he said. "I have reviewed a lot of The Roots and Mos Def recently, and I connected with it more genuinely because the concepts that seemed to apply more to my life now. There is a commotion on the news channels, your deadlines, our waves ... I wanted to put together a soundtrack for those that are living in the struggle and anguish during the tumultuous times and provide them with the courage and enlightenment through sound".
