More new music for the New Year. My buddies Tunji and Toby — better known in industry circles as the duo Inverse — have dropped their latest project, the So True EP.
For those hopeless souls regrettably unfamiliar with Inverse, this Left Coast duo is comprised of some cats you’d think would be opposite ends of the musical, political, and social spectrum. Their bio lists their differences thusly: “One white, one black; one from a Jewish household, the other raised Muslim; one raised in Los Angeles, the other in the bay area by Nigerian parents. What they share is a passion for music that transcends any labels.”
It’s that passion and unique brand of soulful, straightforward hip-hop that’s earned Inverse a legion of fans across the globe. Their music is refreshing, a throwback to the sensibilities of 90’s hip-hop while transcending boundaries and pushing the artform and culture into new realms. The duo are readying their full length Long Day’s Journey for a 2009 release.
Inverse has offered So True to the masses for free download. Hit the jump for download links and tracklisting.
