JYoung The General - Black History Year: Installment Two

After a long wait, fellow BLAT! Packer JYoung The General finally releases his newest tape Black History Year: Installment Two, the sequel to 2010's Black History Year...
Michigan emcee JYoung The General has joined forces with and dN|Be Apparel to present the second installment of his Black History Year series. Just like the first installment which was released a year ago, Black History Year Installment Two is executively produced by Nick Speed (who has produced for G-Unit, Danny Brown and Elzhi).
Black History Year: Installment Two is part of an EP series that JYoung The General created to raise awareness of black issues, leaders and events. JYoung is joined by Michigan staples such as OneBeLo, Mae Day and Buff1 to edutain listeners on the Black Panther Party for Self Defense, the Pan-African flag, gentrification and more. Today’s release date, April 19, pays homage to the the date that Stokely Carmichael, a founding member of the Black Panther Party, coined the term “Black Power” during a 1967 speech in Seattle.

Musiq Soulchild - Feel The Real

Having been working with R&B artist Musiq Soulchild for almost two years now on his side projects (The Husel/Pwonda Love, and his top secret animation project), I was given the task to do the art and design for his eight studio album Feel The Real. The direction he wanted to go in for the album was dealing with the idea of emojis and wanted specific ones designed for each of the 24 songs on the double disc album. He also wanted the look of the design to feel like a text message but also still incorporated the denim feel continuing from his previous album Life On Earth. So here's a look at the design of the album booklet along with the 24 emojis as well.

Feel The Real is available on iTunes and in Best Buy and Target now!
