It seems as if Brooklyn-based hip-hop artist Beans, of the recently reunited Anti-Pop Consortium, was looking to experiment with his next album. Appropriately, Beans headed to Anticon, the hip-hop label that everyone knows is all about experimentation, and the two parties worked out a new deal to release Bean’s upcoming fourth album, End It All.
The new album is described as being “lush, darkly tinted soundscapes from some of the most inspired names in contemporary production.” The album also displays the MC pushing his distinctive vocal stylings to “new heights,” exploring “highly stylized braggadocio,” and narratives about mysteries and the detectives who solve them.
Are you still wondering who those above mentioned “most inspired names in contemporary production” are? Well, let me enlighten you: the list of guest producers includes Four Tet, Clark, Tobacco, Bumps, Son Lux, and Interpol’s Sam Fog; this is actually Bean’s first album to feature only guest producers.
The album is set for release sometime in early 2011 and already looks to be further proof that Beans is one of the most exciting, original, and entertaining MCs making music today, as well as a crazy-versatile artist always looking to try something new. Furthermore, all this information goes to show that Beans, when eaten in excess, will most definitely make you toot.
