In 2013, coming off of the heels of the monumental 5-day collaboration sessions that spawned the critically-acclaimed underground project “The Bush League: Cold Skool“, award-winning New Orleans based producer Prospek and legendary underground Hip Hop producer/DJ Bazooka Joe came up with an idea. Since the success of Cold Skool had taken off in a positive direction, it was time to work on a solo project with one of the artists from those sessions.
Memphis’ emcee L’Daialogue DiCaprio was the one that heeded the call with his latest collaborative offering titled The Long Way.
The Long Way is a mixture of soul-based samples layered with classic boom bap production. But the real treat is witnessing L’Daialogue’s lyricism, heavily seeped in a Southern sound marrying itself to not only Joe’s Bronx, New York classic Hip-Hop upbringing but Prospek’s New Orleans based live jazz backing.
Tracks like the title track “The Long Way” or the smooth knocking “It’s Like That” or the pensive “Turnaround” not only shows L’Daialogue’s lyrical versatility but the wide array of production from the GPNYC imprint. This project also features Rah’heim Kaboom, S. Habib & Euphonetiks frontman Lyrikill.
So, get ready to take an audio trip with L’Daialogue as he guides you down “the long way” and vibe out.
