It’s called Strength in Numbers and I’ve known that this project was in the works for some time, but the sheer size of the roster for this album still blows my mind. And perhaps most amazing of all, this brings us the long overdue reunion of the OGs themselves, the Mountain Brothers. I personally can’t wait for this to drop. It’s slated for a December 2013 release.
But something of this magnitude wasn’t created out of nowhere. It took time and resources and continues to need support to see it all to fruition. And that’s where you can come in and be a part of it all. He’s launched a kickstarter campaign, and believe us, this is one project we can get 100% fully behind. This is worth funding, no questions asked.
Words cannot explain how stoked I am for this! This just may end up being the most important album that we’ve covered to date.
