Every moment on the album is a loaded question, a perspective positing a notion of truth, the convergence of grit and symphony. Joining the artists on the record are Joell Ortiz, Westside Gunn, Stalley, Conway and Patty Crash, a reciprocal band of guests that only add depth and richness to the duo’s chemistry. Coming September 30th, “The Easy Truth,” is true to its titular description: honest, fluid, and organic. recorded by Tate McBroom @ LabCabinRoyalOak mixed by Magnetic @ The Disc mastered by Eric Morgeson @ Studio A Detroit Executive Producer Michael Tolle https://twitter.com/apollobrown https://www.instagram.com/apollobrown/ https://www.facebook.com/ApolloBrown https://twitter.com/skyzoo https://www.facebook.com/therealskyzoo/ https://www.instagram.com/skyzoothewr... http://facebook.com/mellomusicgroup360 http://twitter.com/mellomusicgroup https://www.instagram.com/mellomusicg... https://www.mellomusicgroup.com Sounds Beautiful Like The Truth
