The ‘rap crew’ Lessondary is a classic hip-hop trope that doesn’t appear to be going anywhere anytime soon. As such the Lessondary is a collective that has been putting in work for a while now and for their debut Ahead of Schedule it’s beyond time that you finally got to know them.
The squad consists of Von Pea and Donwill (aka Tanya Morgan), Ilyas Nashid, Rob Cave (fka Spec Boogie), Che Grand, Jermiside, Elucid, Aeon and Brickbeats. Recording in various configurations over the years, the Lessondary has amassed a discography large enough to be it’s own section of a Mom & Pop record shop. Each member boasts a lengthy list of accomplishments as well but in their greatest collective effort to date they’ve finally assembled in service of themselves to produce Ahead of Schedule, a record that has been years in the making.
With a sonic backdrop provided by Brickbeats, Aeon, Jermiside and Von Pea Ahead of Schedule is a lyrical whirlwind that isn’t short on cohesive topics or catchy hooks. Clocking in at 10 tracks (11 on the CD version), the cumulative effort effectively displays their dynamic as a self-contained unit with the ability to create a complete product from start to finish. The Lessondary‘s Ahead of Schedule is set for a digital and physical release June 24, 2016 on HiPNOTT Records..
The first single from the album is a posse cut, aptly titled “Introducing…”. Brickbeats brings the heat and each member of Lessondary goes in! Check it out now and pre-order your copy of Ahead of Schedule today on Compact Disc, Cassette, or Digital format.
