Wolf In Wool Productions has decided to run a kickstarter campaign to get the funds necessary for the completion of "PayDay."
Chalkskin came out with "Fresh Donuts" on April 1, 2011, setting the tone for their self-described Character Driven Comedy Hip Hop.
In May, they hope to release their follow up album, "Payday." It is a major leap forward musically, lyrically, and comically. The nineteen to twenty tracks that will be on this album feature the group in it's glory. M.C. Chalkskin, D.J. Pop'N'Fresh, J-Man, and Rich Prophet shine with a boldness and intensity that is sure to engage every listener.
While "Fresh Donuts" may have had it's share of great music, "Payday" will blow you away. This album has been produced by Jaz "Hookmaster" Williams, Godson, Dennis "D-Man" Ingram, and Hunter Bressan. The instrumentation is rounded out byYochanan Winston, Ph.D (saxophone and flute), Dennis Ingram (guitar), Mark Shapiro(guitar), Dominic McNeil (organ), Rama (sitar),and Rahis Khan (tabla).
The group specializes in dope lyrics. The writing and delivery are a great measure more advanced as well. The boys really brought it this time, and the high concept approach has only advanced between the seminal album and this one. In addition to the boys, "Payday" features the vocal talents of Jaz Williams, Kathy Robbins, Candice Thiem, Sangeeta Singh, and Rahis Khan.
The album has been rounded out by comedy sketches that involve Jesse Dillon Sorrells, Mark McKinney, Stella Ingram, and the crew in some situations that I will not divulge here. You'll have to hear them to believe them.
The album has been described as "a beast," and it's been suggested that we could be a contender for "Best Rap Album in San Diego" for 2012.
We have recorded all but one of the songs, but everything needs mixed and mastered. Bottom line is that we've run out of money making the songs as awesome as possible, and we need your help to finish this off. We encourage you to give what you can, butwe're really looking for 25 devoted fans to post up $100. This will get you the amazing Chalkskin package as a reward and make you a part of the magic.
Just two blocks west of Hollywood and Vine, somewhere along the world famous walk of fame, the Chalkskin crew dropped by West-One Productions to record the comedy sketches for their upcoming album and their first mixtape song.
"When we first heard the beat for Tyga's 'Rack City,'" Chalkskin said, "J-Man started free-stylin' a tune we just had to lay down."
The results are "Chalk City," a tight little song you can download for free.
