  • Sol – Turn Me Loud (Video)

    By Mason Strehl on November 25, 2013
    After his recent album Eyes Open, Sol embarks on pushing that album as far as it can go. It's a large project, but it stands apart from almost every hip hop album I have heard this year in its message. It spreads a mature perspective of a man who has gone around the world, seen some things, and has been changed for the better. What a better way to share this experience and knowledge than through music? Today he brings it to the next step with a music video for 'Turn Me Loud'. The black and white video brings the artistry and audio to life, an embodiment of the ideas and expressions he raps about. He is working to change the world, but first he needs to clear a spot out for himself. Check it out below.

  • Sol – Eyes Open (EP)

    By admin on September 14, 2013
    After Sol's incredible Yours Truly album last year, the Seattle emcee went on a 10 month journey around the world. It was an opportunity for him see the world and find himself, but he didn't leave music behind. Eyes Open is a compilation of work he did abroad - In trains, hotels, and wherever - all influenced by his eye opening experiences. The 10 track EP is a mixture of work he released as singles including Dope and Old Him, and new material. Its a beautifully produced album that has a very worldly sound with production from BudoElan WrightGrumpsNima Skeemz and The Zillas. In terms of features, we find only one - Shayhan - on the project. But above all this project is to channel Sol's unique introspective thoughts and unique voice.

    " 10 countries. 10 Months. 10 Songs. I took you with me all around the world.”

    Head over and buy this album right now and support some of the most incredible and down to earth hip hop out there. If you thought Macklemore was socially conscious then take that up 3 notches and you have Sol. It is beautiful, real, raw, and above all it's inspiring. Buy: Sol - Eyes Open (EP)
