Despite a plethora of live performances, charity work (around the globe), a nationally-acclaimed battle victory and a collaborative project with an in-house G-Unit producer, the BLAT! Pack bond remains strong. After a week-long family reunion, the group of artists, producers, and music professionals drops BLAT! Friday, a project named after the biggest shopping day of the year. The EP is a teaser for the group’s full-length project, tentatively scheduled to drop around Christmas 2010.
BLAT! Friday, the collective’s first release as a group, showcases the members at their solo and collaborative best. FowL, the winner of this year’s Eminem-judged Red Bull EmSee battle, appears on three tracks. J.A.E., known for his Detroit radio hit “I Go Hard” with Stretch Money, contributes a pair of 16s. And while JYoung The General keeps his early contributions to only one verse, stays busy prepping the Kevin Nottingham-sponsored sequel to his highly successful Black History Year Installment One with G-Unit producer Nick Speed. BLAT! Pack up-and-comers CapitalSS, Chell, Hir-O, and others hold their own with equally memorable contributions.
