After countless remixes, productions, features, as well as his critically acclaimed [Re]Mixtape Series, Trackademicks has finally come with his full-length debut LP, State Of The Arts. Twelve tracks deep, Trackademicks handles 100% of the production duties. The record enlists a healthy dosage of Track’s known collaborative cohorts, including Little Brother/Foreign Exchange founder Phonte (“Fool On The Hill”), Windy City favorite Kid Sister (“Quit Yo Job”), and the soulful Teedra Moses (“Face The Music”). Along with his own HNRL crew, Oakland favorites Mistah F.A.B. (“Stop It!”) and Goapele (“State Of The Arts”) also make the cut.
Available at all digital retailers, State Of The Arts comes with a substantial 20-something page booklet containing extensive artist liner notes written by Trackademicks himself. In the upcoming weeks Track will also begin releasing video liner notes for select songs off the record. The full digital package also includes previously unreleased bonus material.
