Study Music Group’s Californian duo, Poe & CTZN, spearheaded the hip-hop supergroup, thegoodnews. and recently dropped their long awaited self-titled debut LP, a chill-vibe that takes listeners on a 40 minute, story-telling, lyrical adventure that describes the reality of a 20-something year old emcee trying to maneuver his way through the music industry while trying to support his family with music, rather than struggling thru life’s monotonous 9-5 routine and depending on others signing his checks, bi-weekly.
thegoodnews. dropped The Doors EP back in November of 2015 that left the underground itchin’ for more from the hip-hop collective that featured Del the Funky Homosapien, Jam Baxter, Gee of the Understudies Crew, Juan Alderete, Taka Tozawa, Subjectjazz, DJ Halo and art by Pete Cosmos.
The 6+ minute single was originally premiered via Bonafide Magazine to celebrate the announcement of their self-titled LP thegoodnews., which features the single, The Doors.
Peep the vibe and when you have a clear 40 minutes to listen to thegoodnews. debut, do yourself a favor and mute distractions and put your jittery fingers in your pockets for a refreshing album that requires no fast-forwarding, just a straight-thru listen, which is a rarity these days; above ground, at least.
thegoodnews. LP is available on all digital platforms, now.
