Rashad Sun’s latest album ‘Art + Activism’ sums him up as a rapper.

Business Mentality

Parish Smith, one half of the at times intermittent, but legendary rap duo EPMD has now dropped his 4th full length release. In regular fashion though is corporate theme of the album, ‘Business Mentality’.

As well as having some of his regular collaborators appearing on here, it’s noticeable that PMD is looking to bring through new talent, giving them the opportunity to spit some bars. Even Dinco D of ‘Leaders Of The New School’ performs on here too, but most noticeable is Erick Sermon’s appearance on ‘The Real Is Gone’. With that said, could there be a new EPMD album in the work? We’ll see if that business works out, but for now business is being handled here.
