It has been 20 years since Dan-e-o released his classic track “Dear Hip Hop”. To commemorate this incredible milestone he has released a new album “Dear Hip Hop: 20 Years Later”. The album has remastered tracks from the past as well as new tracks like the Canadian crew track “League of Legends” featuring Thrust, Maestro Fresh Wes, Moka Only, Big Kish & Eternia. Some of the other artists featured on the project are Choclair, Grimace Love, Nish Rawks, DJ Grouch and Deuce Deuce.
The project has a vibe that true Hip Hop purest will enjoy, while combining more current sounds, bridging both worlds seamlessly. Dan-e-o adds his worldclass lyricism to the tracks. His rhyme game will truly make your head spin. He provides layers of complexity that will keep you listening to tracks again and again, getting more out it each time.
This is a truly dope album from one of Canada’s top emcees. In a Hip Hop climate of trap and turn up music, Dan-e-o has created a body of work that contrasts this. This one of a kind album will stand the test of time for the next 20 years and beyond. Make sure you check out this album.
