Basic Vocab – “A Better Way” Album

leave a comment »

Basic Vocab’s sophomore album “A Better Way” is out on all digital stores today! It was released as an iTunes exclusive on April 13th, and will be available on eMusic, Rhapsody, Amazon, and hundreds of other stores later today. Pick it up if you are a fan of Talib Kweli, Blackstar, A Tribe Called Quest, Little Brother, etc. Definitely worth the purchase! We worked hard on this album. Check out the album review on AboveGroundMagazine. Shout out to Skam2?! for the really dope cover. If you don’t know who Skam2?! is, he was the artist behind Eminem’s “Slim Shady LP” cover as well as A Tribe Called Quest’s “Beats, Rhymes, and Life” cover.

Basic Vocab – “A Better Way”

I suppose I should start off with our own group, Basic Vocab (AVX Music Group). They are produced by super-producer Tony Galvin (whose credits include “Shut Up” by Trick Daddy, “Baddest Bitch” for Trina, “You Know Who” for T.I. feat. Travis Barker, “Show It To Me” by T.I. feat. Nelly, “Show You What It Is” for Young Jeezy, etc). Ironically, with such mainstream production credits, Tony is able to craft music reminiscent of 90’s era songs by J Dilla or Pete Rock. In essence, Basic Vocab brings back the sound from the “Golden Era” of hip hop. Their breakout single, “Come Get With It” was featured in the credits of HBO’s Entourage in Season 5 Episode 8. Their sophomore album, “A Better Way” is currently available on iTunes. Pick it up. In the meantime, check out their first official single from the album, “Just Dance”.
